FYI: Ladies no matter how healthy you are and how good your cholesterol has been all your life: expect your LDL levels to jump 30 points from menopause alone! Shocking but typical. Don't be surprised!
Menopause ALONE raises LDL dramatically in women!
Don't forget to ask for hormone testing for thyroid also! The adverse symptoms can be identical to menopausal changes too!! Thyroid dysfunction can exacerbate elevated LDL Cholesterol and insulin resistance with abnormal blood sugars! Check it out! Not to mention the weight gain from hypothyroid conditions!
