Just a quick query, how long does it usually take before cholesterol levels start to fall following starting taking levothyroxine?
I am only on 50 mcg of levothyroxine but due another increase in a few weeks, I was wondering if cholesterol would start to fall as soon as levo was commenced or would I have to wait until I was optimally medicated.
I was going to get my cholesterol tested soon as it was very high last time it was tested a couple of years back and I have always refused statins as I believed the problem was due to my thyroid. Now I am finally being treated for hypothyroidism I am interested to know if it is bringing my cholesterol down.
Many thanks in advance.
