I've just been diagnosed with hypothyroid and am about to start on Levothyroxin (it's all new to me, I may get the names wrong!) At the same time my cholesterol was 8, I've had symptoms for around a year: tiredness, depression etc but put it down to my age and the start of the menopause! I've read that it can lead to higher levels of cholesterol, but as I was diagnosed after a routine health check I am now worried it's further on than I thought and I've ignored my symptoms. Will Levothyroxin deal with the cholesterol problem? My diet is good and I'm not particularly overweight.
