Hypothyroidism in Pregnancy - The Preventions

Hypothyroidism is a condition in which the thyroid gland is under active and produces very little thyroid hormones.

Hypothyroidism during pregnancy
According to statistic, approximately 2% of all pregnancies suffer from some degrees of hypothyroidism and another 2 out of 1,000 pregnancies will be complicated by clinical hypothyroidism. If you have hypothyroidism during pregnancy, you may need to have your thyroid hormone checked every 4-6 weeks, if necessary, medication is also adjusted to make sure that your thyroid within the acceptable range.
A. How to
1. Quit Smoking
2. Eating healthy

3. Meditation or Yoga
Mediation and yoga can help a woman to calm and relax, thus reducing or lessening the risk of the disease caused by stress related
4. Limit intake of saturated fats and fats
As they can increase the risk of heart diseases and stroke.
5. Limit intake of alcohol
6. Moderate exercise to enhance the normal production of certain hormones.
7. Etc.

B. Nutritional supplements
1. L-tyrosine
The benefits of L-tyrosine, a nonessential amino acid is its function in assisting the making of thyroid hormones from the body. Since it promotes more thyroid hormone production, women with hyperthyroidism should avoid intake of L-tyrosine.

2. Omega 3 essential fatty acids
In a study of Omega-3 Fatty Acids in Inflammation and Autoimmune Diseases
Artemis P. Simopoulos, MD, FACN, reseacher found that the clinical condition and biochemical factors of patients with arthritis, but the clinical intervention studies in other autoimmune conditions have given conflicting results, most likely due to lack of an adequate number of subjects in some and not taking into consideration the background diet or genetic variation. There is a clear need for more carefully designed and controlled clinical trials in the therapeutic application of omega-3 fatty acids to human autoimmune and inflammatory conditions.

3. Iodine
Women with deficiency of Iodine are at risk of developing hypothyroidism. According toThe Lancet, Volume 372, Issue 9633, Page 88, 12 July 2008, Iodine deficiency—way to go yet, indicated that acccording to WHO, in 2007, nearly 2 billion individuals had insufficient iodine intake, a third being of school age. Iodine deficiency can have serious consequences, causing abnormal neuronal development, mental retardation, congenital abnormalities, spontaneous abortion and miscarriage, congenital hypothyroidism, and infertility.

4. Selenium
According to an article of Selenium Critical to General Health and Thyroid Function
by Mary J. Shomon, the author wrote that selenium is a component of the enzyme that helps convert T4 to T3 peripherally, so deficiencies of selenium may impair thyroid function and promote hypothyroidism.

5. Zinc and copper
According to an article of Role of Zinc and Copper in Effective Thyroid Function posted in unarchive, indicated that
a. Copper plays an important role in thyroid metabolism, especially in hormone production and absorption. Copper stimulates the production of the thyroxine hormone (T4), and prevents over-absorption of T4 in the blood cells by controlling the body's calcium levels (Calcium is required for the stabilization of cell membranes and reduces cell permeability).
b. ust as copper is important for thyroid function, zinc too is needed to prevent thyroid problems. Zinc is involved in the process that converts inactive hormone T4 into active hormone T3. An excess of inactive thyroid hormones in the body can lead to an under active thyroid gland. An Italian study showed that patients suffering with hypothyroidism gained improved thyroid function by supplementing their diet with extra zinc.

6. Vitamin D
According to an article of Vitamin D and Hypothyroidism posted in the progressive health, the author wrote that Several articles published over 20 years ago showed that patients with hypothyroidism have low levels of Vitamin D, which may lead to some of the bone problems related to hypothyroidism. People with hypothyroidism may have low levels of Vitamin D due to poor absorption of Vitamin D from the intestine or the body may not activate the Vitamin D properly.
