A year and half back I was diagonised with hyper thyroid(graves disease) after I went to the DR complaining about my weight loss and hand tremors. My levels were totally whacky then but after the DR administered PTU 3 (50 mg) per day my levels came into control after a year and for the last three months my tsh, T3 and T4 were normal and my dr wanted to take just 1 PTU per day. Seeing my levels in control we wanted to plan for our first baby.My gync prescribed me Vitafol and I started having it. Within a month of taking vitafol my levels went back low (tsh was < 0.01) and my Dr increased my PTU dosage to 2 per day. But my concern is vitafol affecting my thyroid levels? I saw its indicated in the prenatals that it contains 150mcg of iodine. I for some reason feel that this iodine is causing my hyperthyroid. When I asked my Dr if I can TTC now, he advised me to wait until my levels get in normal range. Am worried and confused.. pls help!View Thread
