8. Having High Cholesterol.
When one has hypothyroidism, they are likely to have high cholesterol even when they are having a healthy diet and eating healthy. As said earlier, low level of thyroid in one’s body lowers various body functions including metabolism rate. As a result, the slow metabolism rate won’t burn the excess fat in the body. So, if you have always eaten healthy, and the body fat keeps increasing, it is the highest time you decided to address the main cause, and this might lie with your thyroid levels. In case you have always struggled with lowering your cholesterol, you should have a check on your thyroid levels as this could be the main problem.
