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.

    • Hi, No, I do not have celiac  disease. I have an ankylosing spondylitis which is an auto-immune disease provoking an inflammation of the joints. Under the advice and supervision of my doctor and the professor at the hospital I follow a gluten free & casein free diet, which is extremely successful in preventing inflammatory events. And I've been doing so, strictly, for more than 6 years. So I'm not Celiac, but I can tell you that I react strongly every time I take gluten even in small amounts. Even soya sauce, which according to this website has an almost zero dose of gluten, is a lot too much for me. Nevertheless I allow myself to eat food which has been processed in a factory which processes gluten. To conclude, I would say that when you are travelling, especially in a country where celiac disease is scarcely known, you should be twice as careful as when you're going out at home. In the end you can never guarantee that the cook has cleaned his pan after using soya sauce and so on... You can only bet

    • No!  Once you fill the tub, if you sit in it for 3 minutes or you stay for 10... It doesn't change the amount or cost of the water.  That's only relevant if you have 3 kids to cycle thru that same water.  Is your hub bathing in the same water after you? Lol  And even if you add some more hot and stay longer....well...it's much cheaper than perscription meds, vodka or a substance that is legal in a few states.     Of course this only pertains to those of use with running water.... If you make your hub haul water from the creek or well and heat it over a fire....
    • Whether it is bona fide dermatitis herpetiformis, or severe eczema or hives or what have you, we all want to know how to stop the incessant itching.  Through all my research, the solution comes down to one thing: a good long soak in the tub-- with baking soda or Epsom salts or some kind of herbal tea, followed by a rub down in thick expensive lotion.  I don't know about you, but I was brought up to "get in, get done get out."  A long soak in the bath was a frivolous luxury, and a waste of time and hot water.  So now I'm having this awful breakout from forgetting to read a label and got wheated.  And every night I've been soaking in a baking soda bath to relieve the itching and aid my recovery.  And it's been hard! (But it's been very helpful too)  It has been hard to reconcile this "frivolous luxury and waste of time" as medically necessary!  Fortunately I've had no judging, and only support from my husband, who has had a similar upbringing.  Does anyone else struggle with this?

      I have celiac disease and have been gluten-free for almost 10 years.  I am extremely sensitive to gluten, noting that I react within 15 minutes of contact and in fact the doctor suspects that there may also be an actual wheat allergy at play but have never bothered to be tested since I avoid it like the plague!  I am curious to know if anyone else reacts to flax or inulin?  My symptoms with those two are almost identical to gluten so I have to really watch for that in gluten-free breads and baking and recently discovered after the fact that flax was in the juice I was drinking. I know that people with gluten issues can have other problems as well and in fact I also avoid milk products.  Even after 10 years, and although it has become a way of life, it's still frustrating to have to read every ingredient on every label.😞
