Hi all. I am new to this board. I just started taking Iodoral 2 days ago. I am hypothyroid and currently take 2 alternative doses of Synthroid. My question is I just found out that I am pregnant! I understand that the Iodine can have a detoxifying affect and possibly cause my TSH levels to rise at first. I know how important it is to have the TSH under control during pregnancy. I wonder if this will be ok knowing I'm only about 3 weeks pregnant? My goal was to minimize or eliminate the Synthroid before I got pregnant. My last TSH was 3.67 and my doc had wanted to up my dose a tad and that's when I started researching iodine.
My endo was ok with me taking Iodine but doesn't believe that it can make any difference in the TSH levels (her opinion, not mine).
