Jenn35 Posted January 27, 2014 Share Posted January 27, 2014 I was diagnosed with Hashitmoto's hypothyroiditis when I was 8 years old. All of my labs have just been TSH tests, not full thyroid panels (except for the ones at the very beginning). I know I also had high cholesterol at the time, but it was not treated. Flash forward to 24 year old me. I just went to the doctor. I had glucose tests (fasting/glucose drink and the 6 week panel): both were normal. Cholesterol: LDL is high (187). HDL is normal. Insulin: incredibly high . 44uIU/ml (normal is <10) I'm freaked out. I've been eating paleo for the past month or so, and I started with a Whole14 in January 2014. I also did a Whole30 last January 2013. I realize that things will not change overnight. I'm just wondering what this all means. My doctor did not explain any of the results, but sent a prescription my way, so I changed doctors. I need explanations. In the mean time, can anyone help me out? What's the tie between thyroid, insulin, and cholesterol? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
