Hi, I've not posted here for a while, however I do have some questions that maybe someone may help me find a solution to. Firstly I'm hypothyroidien and on daily Levothyroxine (87.5), I'm ready to accept that it is quite well managed- a part from side effects (quite a number but I can support them), however my Cholesterol levels are another issue: A few months ago my overall cholesterol was 8 mmo/L ; HDL1.4mm/L, LDL=5.63mmo/L; tri= 2.12. After 3 months of 'painful' treatment (side effects: painful articulations, muscles, fatigue) of Ezeterol 10 mg I'm down to (all in mmo/L =Overall cholesterol 6.24; HDL=1.48; LDL=4.05; tri=1.55.
So I've stopped taking the pill as the pain in my articulations is too much; I'm feeling much better but even after all the articles in the media and notably the book on "Cholesterol the Great Con" I'm still asking myself if i'm not a case to be treated for 'high cholesterol' even though at 65 ans my arteries are fine. What do you think I should do? My mother had high cholesterol levels and is now 93 having had a stroke due to fibrilations, but not the fault of her high cholesterol level.
