F. Shahmohammdi, A.R. Mansourian and H.R. Mansourian

The aim of this study was to establish the relationship between the serum Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH) and thyroxin (T4) which reflect thyroid function assessment, with nausea and vomiting, among pregnant women in early pregnancy. In present study 60 pregnant women without nausea and vomiting compared with 60 pregnant women with nausea and vomiting during 2007-2008. Two groups of case and control were matched. Patients with nausea and vomiting did not have significant differences when compared with control subjects in TSH level, the data from this investigation indicated that, T4 level elevated among 34 subjects (56.6%) with nausea and vomiting compared to 20 subjects (33.3%) of women without nausea and vomiting. These data suggest that there is a role for elevated T4 in nausea and vomiting among pregnant women, in early pregnancy.
