Hello and welcome! We’re fellow patients here and can’t give medical advice, but is there any chance that you could get an appointment via telemedicine with your primary? It’s true that hypothyroidism can actually push cholesterol higher – in fact, medical guidelines recommend that if someone has a brand new diagnosis of high cholesterol that you check their thyroid first to see if that’s the real problem! This might be a “watch and wait” situation to see if your TSH increases further, but it’s important to get advice from an expert.
