We were sorry to hear about the loss of your child. In answer to your question, it is clear that those with hyperthyroidosis (increased thyroid hormone production) are at an increased risk for preeclampsia. It is also clear that these women generally might benefit from hormone replacement therapy and close TSH and T4 monitoring. Speak with a perinatologist to confirm your suspicions and to ensure that she is getting appropriate pregnancy management.
