Thyroid Nodules linked to high cholesterol

shortly after having my thyroid removed due to multinodular disease my lab results indicated slightly elevated bad cholesteral. Good cholesteral was still in the excellent range. The tests were repeated 6 months later and were still elevated so my doctor prescribed RX. I have recently read thyroid problems are linked to high cholesterol. Should I have my thyroxin dosage scrutinzed more?

Hi.. There are other causes of high cholesterols too.. The most important of these are the dietary factors.. Why don't you modify your diet habits instead.. You have to modify the thyroxin dosage if your thyroid harmones levels are abnormal.. check your throid function test if your doctor approves and then if they are abnormal then you can scrutinize the thyroxin dosage as well..
