Synopsis: 
The thyroid function of 1744 pregnant women was clinically evaluated with a new self-sequential longitudinal reference interval (SLRI) which we established. Thyroid disorders were common in pregnant women and the disorders were associated with pregnancy and fetal outcome. Routine maternal thyroid function screening is important and should be recommended.

ABSTRACT

Objective: We attempted to evaluate maternal thyroid function in a new self-sequential longitudinal reference interval (SLRI) which we established recently. By this method, we analysed the correlation between pregnancy outcome, neonatal thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) level and maternal thyroid diseases.
