Ok, so managed to get a free chloresterol check via a main supermarket today and it came out at 5.9. Pharmacist v helpful and noted: 'so, you exercise, eat really healthy, don't smoke, are not overweight etc etc but your score is really too high. You should get your thyroid checked and if your t4 is low ask for treatment with thyroxine as you are most likely hypothyroid and this score could cause a heart attack'.
I explained that this was an issue that I'm trying to get me GP to understand. He replied that surely any GP should take such things into account. He was aghast that no GP has ever tested my chloresterol I told him I'd come on my own account.
So, my question is: Has anyone secured a diagnosis of hypo on elevated chloresterol (as well as other symptoms and the risks this causes?
