I wish more than anything in the world that I had found a thyroid-literate naturopath & doctor before I suffered through so many miscarriages & spent thousands of dollars on IVF. It’s one of the reasons why I went back to school for 4 years of full time study to become a naturopath myself & why I am so passionate about supporting women with thyroid issues.
Why? Hypothyroidism is the 2nd most common condition affecting women of reproductive age and the terrible tragedy is the pregnant woman with hypothyroidism is at increased risk miscarriage and other major gestational morbidities. That’s why.
If you know someone trying to fall pregnant who suspects they may be hypothyroid or is experiencing repeated miscarriages give them a gift of a lifetime with this instructional article by Dr. Hugh D. Melnick, Medical Director of Advanced Fertility Services in New York City on infertility, miscarriage and sub clinical hypothyroidism from his published response in American Journal of Obstetrics & Gynecology setting out the need to test newly pregnant women for thyroid disorders.
