hello ladies !! who is under consultant care because of thryiod! what can i expect x
Are you hypothyroid? If so you can expect them to check your thyroid function. I had to drop my dose as pregnancy messes around with levels. Sometimes needs increasing. I need to have 3 growth scans at 32, 36 and 38 weeks to check that it is not interfering with growth. My BMI is raised so need glucose tolerance test at 28 weeks. Have to deliver in a consultant unit not a birth centre. Hope this helps.
thank you !!! I Have underactive thryiod x
Same as hypothyroid so should do similar but different units vary.
I'm hypo thyroid too but only marginally - on 25mg thyroxine. I've just been told I need bloods tested a few times but that's it. Nothing mentioned about scans or labour! Got a consultant appt in July but thought that was for my heart murmur rather than thyroid x
my dose was increased from 25 mg to 50 mg and got go see consnlutant 17 th june x
I was on 200mcg now on 150mcg been hypothyroid for 10 years plus and last 3 years not well controlled.
