Like "The cholesterol goes hand in hand with elevated blood sugar levels. My doctor told me once I get my blood sugar down more I should also see a drop in my cholesterol levels to determine if she wants to put me on a cholesterol medication. I have Hashimoto's Thryroiditis (hypothryoidism) also, which also means higher cholesterol levels without proper treatment. Talk to your doctor more about the impact your blood sugar levels could be affecting your cholesterol levels and request a referral to a nutritionist for additional support."
