Dating someone with congenital hypothyroidism
It’s pretty vital to your day-to-day functioning as it regulates your energy, hormones and the speed at which your cells work. If you have an overactive thyroid (hyperthyroidism), your body speeds up and everything works faster than it should.
However, to what extent maternal and birth characteristics (including maternal thyroid function, smoking, and birth weight) are associated with thyroid function of the offspring is currently unknown.
(FT4) levels and newborn TSH and FT4 (n = 3339; at birth) or childhood TSH and FT4 (n = 2523; median age, 6 y).
Effects of stress-related changes in thyroid function at birth were transient.
Other potential factors were not associated with offspring thyroid function.
We used multivariable (non)linear regression models to study the association of potential determinants (including maternal TSH, FT4, thyroid peroxidase antibodies, iodine excretion, age, body mass index, smoking status, parity, pre-eclampsia, fetal distress, gestational age at birth, birth weight, mode of delivery, and thyroid function-associated single nucleotide polymorphisms) with newborn and childhood TSH and FT4.
