You Think You Need To Stablize Choesterol, but You Need To Stablize Your Hormones


Cholesterol is easy to test and we have done so many studies to link poor cholesterol control to adverse health effects, especially cardiovascular disease. We have also gone a long way to prove normalizing weight and blood sugar control helps to control cholesterol. But now we know that abnormal hormone levels can lead to problems with cholesterol and cause heart disease. Women with PCOS and abnormal levels of male hormones are prone to cardiovascular disease and may suffer what is called metabolic syndrome. Other hormones can lead to sleep and fatigue disorders which in turn can produce obesity and cholesterol changes. The pineal gland or epiphysis synthesizes and secretes melatonin, a structurally simple hormone that communicates information about environmental lighting to various parts of the body. Ultimately, melatonin has the ability to effect biological rhythms and has important effects on reproductive hormones.Not something that can be easily checked or treated, however thyroid levels are easily checked. Thyroid disease and especially low thyroid called hypothyroidism, in particular, is a well-known cause of accelerated coronary atherosclerosis. T3 or triiodothyronine is implicated more than T4 in some of the cardiovascular effects.
