I just got my results back from my labs! I'm so excited! My thyroid levels are totally normal now, TSH at 1.5! (It was over 100 before!).
In addition, my cholesterol is totally awesome now! A thyroid imbalance can make you have high cholesterol, so I'm sure this is mostly from fixing that, but it might also have something to do with exercise and stuff. Anyway, here's the breakdown:
After: 160 - woo hoo!
HDL (good cholesterol):
LDL (bad cholesterol):
Before: 180 - yikes!
After: 87 - woo hoo!!!
The doc wanted to put me on cholesterol meds and I'm like no, let's see how my thyroid meds and my new exercise program work. And they sure did!!!
