I would start lipitor and improve your diet

and start to take thyroid hormone pills.

make sure you don't take your thyroid hormone pills with other medications and take it on an empty stomach once a day.

let me know if you have questions.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
