High Cholesterol

I know that some people with Hashimotos will also have high Cholesterol.  Does anyone know if the thyroid levels are brought in line with medication, will the high Cholesterol resolve too?

Mine did!! My doctor wanted to put me on Crestor and I refused because I felt sure that because I'd never had a cholesterol problem before that it would come back in line once my thyroid levels got right again.  It took a while, but at last check they were in the normal range - surprisingly, my pcp STILL wanted to put me on Crestor - can't help wonder if he was working for ME or the drug company!!  

I'm not a doctor and I can't say that everyone's cholesterol will come back into normal range.  I'm just glad that *I* refused to add one more pill to my daily regimen....

Good luck....
