I agree with Bree Keep in mind also that thyroid hormones bind with estrogen. Estrogen increases with pregnancy, resulting in increased binding. Ooh, good call Laurie! Didn't even think of that. Thyroid function tests are not uncommonly ordered during pregnancy and interpreting the results is challenging. Physiologically, the concentration of thyroid stimulating hormone TSH normally decreases during the first trimester of pregnancy during which there is maximal cross-stimulation of the TSH receptor by HCG. The TSH concentration then returns to its pre-pregnancy level in the second trimester and then rises slightly in the third. However, most of the changes still occur within the normal non-pregnant range. Clinical indicators are usually confounding due to symptoms of pregnancy that can mimic thyrotoxicosis such as nausea, vomiting, heat intolerance, fatigue, anxiety and palpitations. The presence of a goitre, especially in patients with a borderline iodine deficiency, can further confound the diagnosis. Graves' disease is the commonest cause of true thyrotoxicosis in pregnancy. Where there is prolonged and intractable nausea and vomiting, Graves' disease should be distinguished from hyperemesis gravidarum of pregnancy and transient hyperthyroxinaemia of pregnancy.
