Abstract:

Maternal hypothyroidism, in simple terms, refers to low thyroid hormone levels during pregnancy. The diagnosis is made by a TSH that is greater than normal, and this situation deserves therapy. Many studies have shown that maternal thyroid hormones are very important in pregnancy1-3. Most importantly, emerging data seems to suggest that thyroid hormones are especially important for fetal brain development, especially during early pregnancy4. This article will discuss the importance, diagnosis and management of maternal hypothyroidism, from a clinician’s perspective.
