To add to my previous claim for cholesterol and T3.
"The Osborne lab has already obtained data suggesting that thyroid hormone regulation and cholesterol
metabolism are linked through SREBP-2. The data suggested that in the presence of high T3 levels
(hyperthyroidism), the TR/RXR heterodimer activatesSREBP-2 which in turn results in LDL receptor activation. In the presence of a greater number of LDLR units, more cholesterol is taken up by cells and
