Link: Hashimoto’s Disease: The Danger of Thyroid Antibodies and Pregnancy

By testing TSH alone, thyroid antibodies in Hashimoto’s may be missed, and your doctor may have no idea your baby is at risk.

If your doctor refuses to do these two tests, you have the option to order your own lab tests.

  1. Thyroid Peroxidase Antibodies (TPOAb)
  2. Thyroglobulin Antibodies (TgAb)
