How to cure from hypothyroid and Cholesterol ?

Hypothyroid and Cholesterol, SGPT, WBC and FBS levels are not normal and also missed periods? I am 30 year old single female. Due to my divorce 2 years ago I was very depressed and almost not doing any activity. Right now my weight is more than 85 kg, and I am obsessed. last year I was diagnosed with hypothyroid and my TSH level was 6.5, so doctor prescribed thyronorm 50 mcg which I am taking regularly. Now recently I underwent full body chcek-up and my thyroid level was normal, but sgpt, wbc, FBS levels are elevated and lipid profile is also not normal. Following are my report, wbc (white blood cells ) - 11300, fbs (fasting blood sugar) - 108.2, sgpt - 49 u/l and serum Triglyceride is 205.3 mg/dl and S HDL cholesterol is 30.4 mg/dl which all is not normal. Most important is I missed my 3 periods and haven t experienced menstruation since last 3 months. My feet and legs are always swollen. I feel like there is ring on my ankle because my ankles are swollen as if there is a water retention. I also have a hump below the back of neck on my back. I searched about it on google and I found that it can be due to elevated cortisol levels but I am not sure why do I have it. My heels are also paining every morning on waking up. After waking up I feel I have no energy and I feel so tired. I experience problem in breathing after climbing stairs and can t sit on floor for long time maybe because of obesity . If I sit on floor for more than 5 minutes and if feet is pressed below my thighs then I feel as if some too many ants are running and biting in my feet because of lack of enough blood circulation in feet and hence I have to keep my feet straight to let blood circulation in feet so that ants running in the feet feeling disappear. If I sit on floor then I have difficulty in standing up without anyone s support. My thighs, lower ab and calf are very fat. I also have skin problem like new moles are formed in body, fungus below breast, rough skin between the breast and weird rough lines are formed on neck and back of neck etc. I also have lots of grey hair . I got the appointment of doctor after 7 days as he is v. busy but I talked to him on phone and he said this all must be due to obesity but I can only say after I meet you. I admit that my lifestyle is very bad, but I am not drinking or smoking but I am not doing any exercise and eating lot of fried food and fast food and also my body clock is disturbed and irregular like I get up late in morning or sometimes wake up whole night and sleep whole day, please tell me now what do I do to get my health better and how do I get my periods back. I am worried as I am too young and also single.

Periods can get delayed even with mental stress. You have not mentioned how many days late you are on your periods. Hypothyroid is not known to cause delayed dates. What your Doctor said is right. You probably are suffering majority of these symptoms due to obesity and bad lifestyle. Eating fried food and fast food increase cholesterol in the body. You need to stop eating the, Eat fresh fruits and green leafy vegetables which reduce cholesterol and also are a good source of antioxidants which help you feel refreshed. You need to exercise everyday by atleast brisk walking for 40 minutes a day. Your blood glucose is in the near diabetic range according to the report. You haven;t mentioned PPBS Report. It would be wise to check for any ovarian cysts which can also cause diabetes, delayed periods. Maintain proper hygiene, take a shower everyday to prevent fungal infections. You can apply Clotrimazole ointment under medical supervision to eliminate fungal infection. Avoid sweat accumulation, keep your body dry by regular pat drying. You seem to be suffering from depressive symptoms which is best if you get looked at by a Psychiatrist. Once your depression is treated you won;t have food cravings and loss of sleep. Eat healthy, stay fit and you will also feel better at the end of the day. Do some hobbies to keep busy as well.
