My wife, who is 29 years old, had symptoms of tiredness and dry skin. So, we tested her thyroid function. I found that her serum TSH level was 150 as well as free T4 below normal. Is this symptom of hypothyroidism? She delivered a baby seven months ago and the test was done recently. She is still breastfeeding. Is it postpartum thyroiditis? I felt she has mildly enlarged thyroid, but I am not sure. I am planning to undergo ultrasonography for thyroid. During pregnancy, her TSH was normal. Do we need to start Thyronorm? Or can I wait for four to six to repeat the test for suspecting postpartum thyroiditis? Is it a must to go for USG? Is there a need to do any other laboratory tests?
