Diagnosed with autoimmune disease following BC and treatment in 2009. Originally on 50 mcg Levothyroxine, upped in Jan 2011 to 75mcg. Moved north later in 2011 and saw Endo locally for a while. Noticed my cholesterol was rising - peaked in 2012 to 8.3. Blood pressure was also in the high category. Went on Statin and BP tablets about a year ago. Back with GP now. Stopped statins earlier this month as I am not happy with taking the drug. Now take Vit B5 - Pantethine instead. GP has increased my levo to 100mcg. My main query is - to what level is the thyroid affecting my BP and chol? I am making lifestyle changes to that my GP cannot use them to rule out the thyroid issue. Thank you - await replies.
