Re: cholesterol levels keep going up

. I thought synthroid was supposed to lower cholesterol as it balanced out your thyroid levels?
I would get it rechecked fasting BUT it seems to me that even though the thyroid levels are ok on synthroid ,people still tend to have high cholestrol, my mom is one of those people . She keeps telling me her synthroid is ok with her, as she is taking bp meds, statins, and heart meds. I continue to tell her that her thyroid doesn't get all it needs from a synthetic drug and to switch to armour, which has t4,t3,t2,t1, and calcitonin. synthroid has only t4.
