This is my first post on thyroid UK but I was advised to come here from the cholesterol forum. I am 32 years old and I have hypothyroidism. I was initially found to have high cholesterol back in 2016. It was 5.8 (<5.0)
I have also been getting white plaques of skin around my eyes, the nurse said that is indicative of high cholesterol and I have had those since then.
The nurse said she would usually advise me making food and lifestyle choices but because those factors were ok and that I was of low weight at the time those were not applicable to me.
My hypothyroidism is being treated with Levothyroxine and high cholesterol is present in my mum and nan so seems to be genetic? Also family history of heart disease and stroke. TSH has been fluctuating wildly even before diagnosis too.
Thanks for any light that can be shed on this problem I have.
TSH 4.28 (0.2 - 4.2)
FT4 16.1 (12 - 22)
FT3 3.2 (3.1 - 6.8)
Ferritin 17 (15 - 150)
Folate 4.1 (4.6 - 18.7)
Vitamin b12 210 (190 - 900)
Vit D 40.5 (25 - 50 deficiency)
TPO antibody 277 (0 - 34)
TG antibody 308.3 (0 - 115 negative)
I am only taking ferrous fumarate 210mg once a day
