Hello Dr. Fiona,

I had my TSH below 2.5 before FET with synthroid 50mcg. Soon after pregnancy confirmed it rose to 8 and after a week to 13. I'm on 125mcg currently. My question to you are
- can going gluten free help?
- how often to repeat the lab? Endo says 4 weeks..is it better to check after 2 or 3 weeks?
- any foods to avoid?
- can high hcg and estrogen levels disrupt the functioning of thyroid harmones?

Thank you so much!
