High cholesterol and PCOS are extremely common markers in thyroid disease. In fact, cholesterol used to be the diagnostic test for hypothyroidism back in the day. Do you have any thyroid symptoms, such as dry skin/hair, cold intolerance, period problems, weight issues, digestive issues?  Mnay doctors tests TSH and say all is well if it comes back ‘normal’ but the TSH test misses many people with hypo. There are other thyroid tests that are much more accurate, namely Free T4, Free T3, Reverse T3 and antibodies. Do you have any recent labs?

I cannot tell you how many poeple I know whose choelsterol levels plummeted once they got on the right type of thyroid hormone replacement.
