Cd And High Cholesterol/triglycerides
Posted 10 August 2004 - 08:47 AM
I recently got back blood tests, and my cholesterol and triglycerides are high. They've been high off and on since my early twenties. Last year, I finally got cholesterol down to a total of 179. Now it's up to 241 again, my triglycerides are way up, and my fasting glucose is a bit high as well.
The doctor thinks it's strange that I continue to get high readings over time, especially since I currently eat pretty well. Obviously I don't eat a lot of pastries and such, and because of my IBS symptoms, I tend to be careful about red meat, dairy, fat, and other triggers.
I mentioned this on an IBS board, and a couple of people said that if you have an autoimmune disorder, including celiac disease, you can get false readings of blood lipids. Anyone here know anything about that?
