Adequate thyroid hormone availability is important for an uncomplicated pregnancy and optimal fetal growth and development. Overt thyroid disease is associated with a wide range of adverse obstetric and child development outcomes. An increasing number of studies now indicate that milder forms of thyroid dysfunction are also associated with these adverse pregnancy outcomes. The definitions of both overt and subclinical thyroid dysfunction have changed considerably over the past few years, as new… Expand
Thyroid function in pregnancy
TLDR
There is a pressing need for evidence-based studies to determine whether universal thyroid screening in pregnancy is appropriate, and there is a growing awareness of the need for greater clarity with regard to gestational thyroid reference ranges. Expand
Thyroid Disease in Pregnancy and Screening
TLDR
There is increasing debate about whether thyroid screening should be made universal and the current guidelines and latest evidence and opinion in this important area are looked at. Expand
Thyroid disorders in subfertility and early pregnancy
TLDR
The current knowledge base and guidance for practice relating to thyroid disorders in pregnancy and subfertility, and the effectiveness of thyroid hormone use in autoimmune and subclinical hypothyroidism, are summarized. Expand
Persistency of Thyroid Dysfunction From Early To Late Pregnancy.
TLDR
In women with subclinical hypothyroidism, a TSH below roughly 5 mU/L at the time of diagnosis was associated with an up to 50% lower risk of persistency, and the FT4 concentration at diagnosis predicted hyperthyroidism persistency and TPOAb positivity predicted persistency of all disease entities. Expand
Thyroid Screening in Early Pregnancy: Pros and Cons
TLDR
This review critically appraises the literature, examines the pros and cons of universal thyroid screening using criteria laid down by Wilson and Jungner, and highlights the growing evidence for universal thyroid screenings and indicates the key challenges and practicalities of implementation. Expand
Management for women with subclinical hypothyroidism in pregnancy
  • K. Wiles
  • Medicine
  • Drug and Therapeutics Bulletin
  • 2019
TLDR
Pregnancy outcomes in SCH are discussed and the evidence for thyroxine replacement is detailed and reference intervals for thyroid function are outlined including the new upper limit for TSH defined by the American Thyroid Association in 2017. Expand
Reference intervals in the diagnosis of thyroid dysfunction: treating patients not numbers.
TLDR
Although assigning a diagnosis of thyroid dysfunction appears quite simple, this is often not the case, and each patient's thyroid function needs to be assessed on an individual basis with the entire clinical picture in mind. Expand
Thyroid Disorders During Pregnancy, Postpartum, and Lactation
TLDR
This chapter reviews in depth the diagnosis and management of the continuum of thyroid disorders, including issues arising in the preconception and postpartum periods, and discusses the available evidence and clinical guidelines of thyroid Disorders in pregnancy. Expand
Reference values and the effect of clinical parameters on thyroid hormone levels during early pregnancy
TLDR
First trimester-specific reference ranges for serum TSH, FT4, FT3 in a Chinese population are defined and it is demonstrated that BMI ≥23kg/m2, maternal parity ≥3 and maternal age ≥30 years may increase the risk of thyroid dysfunction. Expand
The impact of thyroid disorders on poor clinical pregnancy outcomes in a real-world study setting.
TLDR
Pregnant women with TAI had a significantly higher risk of a baby admission to NICU, and SCH tended to be associated with aHigher risk of preeclampsia and low birth weight, and other poor clinical pregnancy outcomes were not associated with thyroid disorders, but with demographic and obstetric parameters.

Thyroid function in pregnancy: what is normal?
TLDR
There are large differences in thyroid function reference intervals between different populations of pregnant women, which can be explained by variations in assays as well as population-specific factors, such as ethnicity and body mass index. Expand
Guidelines of the American Thyroid Association for the diagnosis and management of thyroid disease during pregnancy and postpartum.
TLDR
Pregnancy is a stress test for the thyroid, resulting in hypothyroidism in women with limited thyroidal reserve or iodine deficiency, and postpartum thyroiditis inWomen with underlying Hashimoto’s disease who were euthyroid prior to conception. Expand
2014 European Thyroid Association Guidelines for the Management of Subclinical Hypothyroidism in Pregnancy and in Children
TLDR
This guideline has been produced as the official statement of the European Thyroid Association guideline committee and indicates that targeted antenatal screening for thyroid function will miss a substantial percentage of women with thyroid dysfunction. Expand
Diagnosis and management of subclinical hypothyroidism in pregnancy
TLDR
O Ongoing prospective trials that are evaluating the impact of levothyroxine therapy on adverse outcomes in the mother and fetus in women with subclinical hypothyroidism will provide crucial data on the role of thyroid hormone replacement in pregnancy. Expand
Subclinical Hyperthyroidism and Pregnancy Outcomes
TLDR
Evaluated pregnancy outcomes in women with suppressed thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) and normal free thyroxine (fT4) levels indicated that identification of subclinical hyperthyroidism and treatment during pregnancy is unwarranted. Expand
Subclinical Thyroid Disease and the Incidence of Hypertension in Pregnancy
TLDR
Women with subclinical hypothyroidism identified during pregnancy have an increased risk for severe preeclampsia when compared with euthyroid women, and this is a secondary analysis of a prospective prenatal population-based study. Expand
Maternal early-pregnancy thyroid function is associated with subsequent hypertensive disorders of pregnancy: the generation R study.
TLDR
It is shown that biochemical hyperthyroidism and also high-normal FT4 levels during early pregnancy are associated with an increased risk of hypertensive disorders, even seen for a mild variation in thyroid function within the normal range. Expand

TLDR
Pregnant women with subclinical hypothyroidism or thyroid antibodies have an increased risk of complications, especially pre-eclampsia, perinatal mortality and (recurrent) miscarriage. Expand
Regulation of maternal thyroid during pregnancy.
TLDR
The alterations in maternal thyroid function during gestation are intricate and far from fully understood, and regulation of the maternal thyroid is complex, resulting from both elevated hCG and increasing TSH. Expand
Treatment of Subclinical Hypothyroidism or Hypothyroxinemia in Pregnancy
TLDR
Treatment for subclinical hypothyroidism or hypothyroxinemia beginning between 8 and 20 weeks of gestation did not result in significantly better cognitive outcomes in children through 5 years of age than no treatment for those conditions. Expand
