Hi, 4 months ago, after feeling progressively more unwell over some time, I had a my thyroid tested. My TSH was 127, which I was told was extremely high. I have been on increasing doses of Levothyroxine ever since and have just gone up to 125mg.
In my last blood tests a couple of days ago my TSH was down to 25, but my cholesterol was at a crazy level - 10.9 despite the fact that I eat very healthily in general. I should note this test was done as part of my thyroid checks, and I didn't fast. I have another fasting test on Monday.
I guess I am wondering if this cholesterol is likely to be related to my thyroid function. In relative terms my TSH is now low given what it was, and I feel totally different to how I did a few months back. However in absolute terms it's still pretty high I suppose. Could this still be a factor in my cholesterol being so high?
Any thoughts would be very welcome
