Abstract

Untreated thyroid dysfunction during pregnancy increases morbidity in the mother and fetus. Anti-thyroid medication is the first-line therapy for hyperthyroidism during pregnancy. The diagnosis of thyroid dysfunction in pregnancy is complicated because of seemingly insignificant and non-specific symptoms which overlap with normal changes during pregnancy. Early detection and management should be done to prevent maternal and fetal complications.
