Re: cholesterol levels keep going up

Tigger have you read my new thyroid care and concerns post? In most cases triglycerids and cholesterol levels will improve with the treatment of hypothyroidism AS LONG AS there is no adrenal dysfunction accompanying the thyroid dysfunction. The adrenal glands are responsible for taking and using cholesterol as the base component for well over a dozen other essential hormones and steriods that we need on a day to day basis. If you have PCOS, insulin resistance, hypoadrenalism, or a few other adrenal effecting issues, your cholesterol and triglycceride levels will continue to climb unchecked until the source of the issue is found and treated. I go into this in more detail in my new thyroid care and concerns thread. Hope it helps some people.
