"Prior to beginning Crestor, I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism and began treatment. I have since discovered that it was the combination of Levothyroxine and Crestor that caused my physical ailments."
I don't doubt it. How did you make the determination that was the problem and that the two interact poorly? Doctors' comments or reading medical literature?
"My cholesterol never went down when my thyroid disease was treated and regulated. Its still high. It did go down about 20 points though when I lost all of my weight and was skinny again but its still "high" every time its checked on a blood test"
What are your cholesterol levels and how old are you?
I have seen a "distribution chart" in one of my books showing the number of people who reduce their cholesterol levels with thyroid correction versus those whose levels go up or remain the same. By far most go down. A few stay the same and a few go up a bit. As you know, there are many factors involved. As Brooks says, our bodies know where our cholesterol needs to be. You may be just where you should be.
There is no doubt that I have been feeling better with more energy in the last couple of weeks, but the picture for why is not real clear after getting testing results back. I will post on it in this thread before too long. I will say this, my Vitamin D was up over the reference range -- which is good. The reference range is just where most people plot on the graph, not an indicator of optimal values for VD. We know most people are low. I have been supplementing a good bit for months. That statins may have pushed your levels down sounds possible to me, and the fact that your TSH, T3 and T4 levels appeared OK on tests may not be surprising even if you were having thyroid related problems. However, your symptoms may not have been thyroid related though. But maybe.
I don't know if Pharma & Friends (e.g., American Heart Association, JAMA, etc.) have gone after VD the way they went after VE yet, but here is a write up on that attack:
