Cholesterol and Thyroid Link

Thyroid and Cholesterol Link Confirmed Via Genetic Analysis

At the clinic, we often see that thyroid hormones and cholesterol/lipid levels are strongly linked in our patients.

Clinical studies have shown in the past that treating patients with thyroid hormones can improve cholesterol levels. However, it has never been clear that suboptimal thyroid hormone levels were directly responsible for causing high cholesterol since so many other factors are involved when a patient is hypothyroid.
