high triglycerides & thyroid disorder

Hi
Geno 1b UND 10 week
I am 20 week TX peg+reb and my triglyceride are very high since I started TX
They swing 300-600
I made TSH check
TSH 6.21
FT4 15.1
FT3 4.59
I am afraid that my doctor may reduce dose of either medicine
Are high triglyceride related to thyroid disorder or it is separate problem?
How is treated tsh/triglyceride on TX
Thanks

Hi,
I didn't have any problems with my thyroid on treatment but I did have trouble with my Triglycerides.  I started treatment at 117 and after several weeks I was up to 587.  They prescribed Lopid, a statin drug, which took care of it.  Eventually I was able to cut the dosage in half.  After treatment my Triglycerides returned to normal :-)
