Thyroid

Underactive thyroid, high cholestrol. Can I wait for thyroid medication to get to work and test cholesterol again before starting with cholesterol medication?

Hallo Sonja
Yes you probably can - although I would not wait longer than 10 -12 weeks - if the cholesterol still high by then, rather take cholesterol medication.
