High cholesterol is a symptom of under active thyroid function.
Thyroid helps convert cholesterol into the highly protective anti-inflammatory substances, pregnenolone, progesterone, testosterone, DHEA, and bile.
As you age, and as metabolism slows, rising cholesterol helps defend against stress, inflammation, infection, disease, and degeneration.
Lowering cholesterol with the use of statin drugs and with consumption of polyunsaturated fats (PUFAs) has been associated with increased mortality, particularly from cancer.
Biologically speaking, it makes more sense to lower cholesterol by improving thyroid metabolism, thereby converting more into the protective things.
