I agree with you to get your Thyroid under control first. Yes your numbers are fairly high but, I am definately NOT a statin lover and that would be my VERY last resort. Just my honest opinion. I took them in 2000 for about 8 months and felt like I was dying, worst thing I ever agreed to taking. Even my Cardio. Dr. took them for a few years and now is sorry he did and will not prescribe them unless absolutely necessary. Yes, some folks do well on them but the majority have too many side effects to warrant using them.
Only advice I can give is to watch your diet, try to exercise and if over weight try and lose some weight. Being hypo will help to raise your cholesterol. Here's hoping your doing better and get the Thyroid under control then maybe the cholesterol will come down.
Wishing you all the best...JJ....
When you come to the end of your rope..tie a knot and hang on!
