Hi, I am 36 years old and female,. I was diagnosed hypothyroid in 2013 and also suffer from hyperlipidaemia (high cholesterol). I have been struggling with getting my levo dose right since then and I have never felt completely well for about 20 years. So my symptoms are mainly dry skin, tiredness, low libido, hair falling out, feeling cold, heavy periods, loss of appetite, headaches, dry and puffy eyes.
When I saw the nurse about the high cholesterol she said normally she would advise on a healthy diet and exercise but due to my age, size, weight, my good diet and my active lifestyle she was completely confused about what advice to give me so the cholesterol seems to be a red herring.
Advice appreciated, thank you.
