The effects of simvastatin and levothyroxine on intima-media thickness of the carotid artery in female normolipemic patients with subclinical hypothyroidism: a prospective, randomized-controlled study.

J Cardiovasc Med (Hagerstown) 2007 Dec;8(12):1007-11.
PubMed Citation Journal Link

... CONCLUSION: Our results demonstrate that simvastatin significantly reduces IMT in addition to the significant improvement in serum lipids in female patients with sHT. This reduction of IMT was independent of the decrease in serum cholesterol during simvastatin treatment. Although L-T4 substitution therapy also decreases IMT, it does not appear to significantly improve lipid levels.
