Hi all, I'm wondering if anyone has info about this. My mom's thryroid became underactive after she had me -it was due to the pregnancy. Does anyone know if this is hereditary? My next doctor's appt is in a week but I thought I'd ask here to see if anyone knew. Thanks!

Underactive Thyroid is hereditary my mother and grandmother both had it as do i but my older sister doen't so you might be alright but you should have your doc just keep on top of you thyroids incase you have or delevop it better safe than sorry

Thanks Togirl! I told my doc at my initial appointment but realized I never asked if they'd track it or if I need to ask for special tests. So i'll follow up next time.
