Discussions that mention synthroid

Osteoporosis board


Hi Jacal5- I tried Policosanol for 6 months and it did nothing to lower my total cholesterol. All my family has/had high cholesterol - in the genes - so have always watched carefully what I eat (rarely eat red meat, etc) and get exercise. My triglicerides run in the 30-40's. They say that is because of thyroid issues - was hyper and they killed it and am now on synthroid - which does not help the osteoporosis issue.

I am really confused about this talk or soy. I read that soy isoflavanoes can be GOOD for bone density and that soy is good to take during menapause. I have friends who take it regularly and I just startd to again. Took it years ago regularly. Im on low dosage of synthroid and was not told to avoid soy. I will research this further....
Oh thanks jacal for cholesterol info..I take lipitor 10 mg...Last test though my total was 203 my tri was 81 my HDL 80 and my LDL 107 and to think my doc wanted to up my dose cause he said the 203 was too high and wanted to put me back on 20mg and I refused....
