Increased Pregnancy Loss Rate in Thyroid Antibody Negative Women with TSH Levels between 2.5 and 5.0 in the First Trimester of Pregnancy
...
Women were divided into two groups based on their initial TSH: group A, TSH level below 2.5 mIU/liter, excluding hyperthyroid women..., and group B, TSH level between 2.5 and 5.0 mIU/liter.
....
The rate of pregnancy loss was significantly higher in group B as compared with group A (6.1 vs. 3.6% respectively, P = 0.006).
....
Conclusions: The increased incidence of pregnancy loss in pregnant women with TSH levels between 2.5 and 5.0 mIU/liter provides strong physiological evidence to support redefining the TSH upper limit of normal in the first trimester to 2.5 mIU/liter.
