My last blood test results showed that my cholesterol is high and that I should go to GP to be put on medication for this.
I went to pharmacy today where they do an on the spot test for total cholesterol and it came back at 237 which is 30 higher than last test I had there.
My understanding is that my cholesterol should lower if my thyroid medication is at the correct level - I currently take 100 mg of levo - she has not acknowledged the link between high cholesterol and under active thyroid which I find quite worrying.
I am going to see a different endo as soon as I can get an appointment and hope that this one will understand that 1) I still do not feel well and 2) I don´t want to take medication for high cholesterol if I do not have to.
Has anyone else had similar experience of this - its driving me mad :(.
