Hi, I have Hashimoto's Disease (Autoimmune Hypothyroidism) and I am TTC#2.
I lost an pregnancy in March at about 8 wks. I concieved in January and had a TSH function test about 5 days before conception. The result of that test was TSH = 3.86 and Free T4 = 16.1.
Since then my Dr increased my Thyroxine meds from 100x5d.p.w and 75x2d.p.w to 100x7d.p.w. I had a new test done last week. The result was TSH = .62 and Free T4 = 16.8.
So my TSH has dropped quite a bit and my Free T4 has slightly increased.
When I questioned this with my Dr - i.e. is this a good level to be at for TTC? He seemed vague. AS this is my first time TTC since being diagnosed with Hashimoto's I was wondering what other's experiences are for optimal TSH levels for conception. Some reading on the net that I have already done suggests between 1.0-2.0 is best????
