Abstract

[Pregnancy has wide-ranging effects on the endocrine system. The synthesis, metabolism, and binding of many hormones are altered in pregnancy. Immune tolerance induced by pregnancy can alter the course of autoimmune endocrine disorders such as Graves’ disease. The placenta secretes multiple hormones including human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG), human placental lactogen, growth hormone, estrogen and progesterone, all of which have downstream effects on other hormonal axes. It is important to consider pregnancy-specific hormonal alterations in the diagnosis and treatment of women with endocrine disorders during gestation and to consider both the maternal and fetal impacts of any diagnostic or therapeutic interventions. While most women with appropriately treated endocrine disorders will have uneventful pregnancies, undiagnosed or untreated endocrine disease can have devastating consequences.]
