I am 62 year old women, 3 months back I have diagnosed with Thyroid dysfunction. I have done my lipid profile and found that ldl cholesterol is above normal value. When consulted doctor he prescribed thyroflex for thyroid and lodens f 10 mg for cholesterol. In recent tests cholesterol levels fell drastically below normal range and along with it diagnosed with elevated liver enzymes (AST, ALT, GGT). Could you please let me now if all these 3 have consequences on each other (like Thyroid hormone on LDL cholesterol and lodens f tablet on liver enzymes)? Also suggest the best possible solution.

I believe that in your Lipid profile, it is Triglycerides which are raised. Also normal bilirubin with elevated AST and ALT points to a fatty liver. Underactive Thyroid (Hypothyroidism) is a common risk factor for significant nonalcoholic fatty liver disease. Once the thyroid gets under control and with regular exercise, avoiding junk etc would be helpful.
