Hi Anon

Thanks for your post!

A thyroid level of 14 is considered high. Your wife needs to work alongside her OB/GYN to be monitored during her pregnancy. This high level is not something that means she should abort the baby. Please have her contact her doctor for further advice.
I hope the pregnancy goes well!

Hi Anon!

I'm sorry you've had bad experiences in this matter but your story is your own, rather than similar to everyone else's. I hope you have better health care now and we still encourage others to work with their doctors on their health care.
