Thyroid hormone essentially is needed to remove the excess cholesterol from the body. Cholesterol present in our body attaches to a protein to form lipoprotein. This is available in two forms – HDL (High Density Lipoprotein) which is the good cholesterol and LDL (Low Density Lipoprotein) which is considered the bad cholesterol and thus the excess needs to be removed. While diet plays a very important role in the amount of cholesterol present in the body, certain diseases like hypothyroid also leads to high cholesterol levels, especially the LDL cholesterol.  Excess amounts of LDL cholesterol in the blood has been known to clog the arteries and lead to heart diseases. Thus it becomes imperative to timely check your cholesterol levels if you already have been diagnosed with thyroid disorder. Along with this, you are also at high risk of becoming a diabetic.
