Abstract

The 2017 American Thyroid Association thyroid and pregnancy guidelines provide an exhaustive review of a rapidly evolving literature and comprehensive recommendations. Although agreeing with most of the recommendations, I present an alternative perspective on the normal range of TSH in pregnancy, management of women on levothyroxine preconception and universal screening for thyroid disorders during pregnancy.

Refers to Alexander, E. K. et al. 2017 guidelines of the American Thyroid Association for the diagnosis and management of thyroid disease during pregnancy and the postpartum. Thyroidhttp://dx.doi.org/10.1089/thy.2016.0457 (2017)
