Mine is moderately high. My celiac symptoms are mainly atypical, though. My body is just weird for almost everything!

Mine is very high and also my triglycerides. I cannot take most of the meds for it either. I now use Welchol, fiber, and have had to start drinking a small glass of red wine regularly. This teetotaler is not used to that! At lest the numbers are looking better.

Apparently the celiac disease can cause problems with the liver and the cholesterol does not get handled properly in our bodies. That was the explanation that was given to me by the docs. My family history also has high cholesterol in it.

I am non-Celiac gluten intolerant and have had high cholesterol. When I have taken supplements that benefit my liver (licorice, turmeric, milk thistle, artichoke, bitters) I have improved my cholesterol levels. I was 240 total and my doc wanted me to start on a statin but I didn't like how it made me feel so I started taking supplements for my liver. I was already taking a good amount of fiber (psylliam, flax). 6 weeks after I started taking liver supplements, I got my cholesterol tested again and the total was 200.

I'm curious as to what it is now but have other, more pressing things to spend my health care dollars on so will probably wait until next year when my insurance budget is better.

PS my triglycerides, however, were awesome, under 70 each time.

My cholestrol was 259.................... and my triglycerides where triple what the norm is. My medical docor did put me on Zetia 10 mg daily and now it's down to 200 6 months later.
