High TSH levels after hypothyroidism therapy increase miscarriage risk

August 20, 2014

Women treated with levothyroxine are likely to have thyroid-stimulating hormone levels above the gestational target, linking them to a higher risk for miscarriage, according to research published in The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism.

Through a historical cohort analysis, researchers in the United Kingdom found thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) levels surpassed the 2.5 mU/L recommended during the first trimester, with likelihood of miscarriage increasing at levels exceeding 4.5 mU/L.
