Dr. Lazarus shares what treatment plan a pregnant woman with high thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) should follow.
Well, she needs to take thyroid therapy. She needs to take levothyroxine tablets, and she needs blood tests, say every two months during the pregnancy to make sure that she is on the right dose of levothyroxine.
