New here/First lab results in a long while - Graves

Hi Everyone - I was diagnosed with Graves about five years ago. I sought out a conservative Endo, who put me on Tapazole. I eventually ended up in remission, but due to a number of issues (insurance, doctor becoming unresponsive, etc.) I haven't had blood work done for quite some time. I recently started to feel symptomatic again, and resumed taking Tapazole. I was finally able to get in with another Endo recommended to me. Haven't seen him yet, but here is my pre-visit labwork, if anyone has thoughts.
For the first time, my LDL is also a little high (199, with 99 as the top of range), which concerns me.

Free T4 1.08 (.82-1.77)
TSH 3.96 (.45-4.5)
T4 7.7 (4.5-12)
T3 (71-180)
TPO 289 (0-34)
Antithyroiglobulin Ab 26 (0-40)

Yah..un or under treated Hashimoto's autoimmune hypothyroidism will do that to the LDL. Mine fell over 123 points four months after being treated with both T4/T3. You're in great hands...good doctor!
