I've been diagnosed as hypothyroid and the blood tests also showed that my kidney function was very low and my cholesterol level very very high. (9.3)
I am a physically active, healthy eating and non-smoking 40 year old man so I was surprised by these results.
Anybody else have similar results and how did these things respond to thyroxine tablets?
Background: I was fit and healthy and my symptoms hit me like a wall. Very cold, muscle cramps everywhere, muscle fatigue prevented any repetitive movements like doing my teeth, dry skin, brain fog, swollen face/neck/fingers and legs, huge weight gain in a few weeks. Since taking the pills most of the symptoms have thankfully gone away but the doctor says the kidney and cholesterol levels were unlikely caused by thyroid issue alone. (Worst cholesterol levels he has seen all year / stage 3 kidney disease and equivalent to an 84 year old lady)
