I have been on synthroid for treatment of hypothyroidism for over 20 years and the past 5+ years my cholesterol levels were high and not responding to even very high doses of various brands of statins. I stopped them 2 years ago as they were not making a difference and the side effects weren't worth it , including lowering my already borderline low blood pressure. I was also having extreme symptoms of hypothyroidism even though bloodwork showed I was being over treated and actually on the hypERthyroid side. Three months ago I switched to Armour Thyroid ( natural thyroid hormones) and my total cholesterol dropped from 240 to 170, in a matter of a couple months. SO YES it is related. Also all my other pains, fatigue and energy problems have disappeared. Research "hypothyroidism type 2"

Hi greencow
I found your post while doing a google for Armour and high cholesterol. I have Hashimotos and have been on thyroxine for 3 years now and am horrified to see my cholesterol rising and rising. I eat well, exercise and yet its now in the extreme risk area. I simply cant do any more, and after reading your post am really interested to see if you are still going well on Armour re cholesterol levels.

Thanks Helen

I have ordered prescription drugs (without a prescription) online from http://inhousegeneric.info about two years ago, and was pleased with the speed and quality of service.
I'm thinking of doing the same thing with my medication. The meds is expensive, but there is a generic version available overseas.
I love the idea of taking responsibility for my own health (or lack of health) and skipping the bureaucracy... to say nothing of having to drive to the doctor, wait in line, yet again, to get a prescription refilled.

Armour thyroid did indeed lower my cholesterol. Its the active T3 thyroid hormone in the Armour that does this.

have been researching for months and reading reviews for each pharmacy and finally decided to take the plunge and order from one. After coming to the conclusion http://goo.gl/9Me2E1 seemed the most safest and had the best feedback I ordered my pills. Was very apprehensive at first due to cc fraud, ell and they are good i would definetely recommend and purchase againspam and being generally ripped off (have not received one spam email and no cc fraud) order process and checkout was simple.
placed my order on my debit card and was charged straight away and received confirmation email immediately. choose the speedy del trackable and was advised del would be 7-9 days and order was placed on the 08/01. was just about to email them today to chase up as now 15 days but behold package had been posted through my door. packaging seems as shown on webiste. apart from small delay on advertised shipping time i have been generally please with the pharmacy.
wont be taking the pills for another few weeks yet but all going well and they are good i would definetely recommend and purchase again from them.
