Suffering from hoshimoto disease. Sudden change in thyroid and cholestrol levels. Using levpthyroxine. Any idea?

Hi My 9 year old daughter has hoshimoto diseases. Her thyroid level is 11.5. should I be worried. Also, her cholestrol was borderline 175 last month when we tested her last and TSH was 2.5. Why did it change in 1 month. The only thing I notoced was she immediately consumed food after medication? Could that be the reason. She takes half of 125mcg of levothyroxine which is 62.5 . Should the doctor need to increase her medication. m

Dear Ma'am.

Sorry to hear about your daughter's problem. Her increased cholesterol can be explained because of the Hashimoto's disease. Hashimoto's diseaase leads to hypothyroidism, which is evident by her high TSH levels and hypothyroidism leads to increase in cholesterol levels.
These levels will come down as her thyroid levels normalise. This has no relationship with consumption of food after the medicine.
Hoping for the best.
