My GP’spet panic is cholesterol. She’s obsessed with it. Last blood tests showed high cholesterol 7.5! However, my thyroid function was extremely low, despite me being on meds for that. She wanted to prescribe statins to me. I was reluctant to take it.
I always take a copy of my latest blood results to my Neuro appointment. She pointed out that once my thyroid levels reached normal, so too would my cholesterol and not to take statins. Last weeks results…thyroid now too raised, so lowering the dose of Eltroxin. Cholesterol however, coming down to 6.5. My normal level has been around the 5 mark. Sue is right, the ratio of good/bad is what counts. See the gp.
