In Topic: Gluten Free And Cholesterol Is Still Too Low.

01 February 2013 - 01:41 PM

It's never a bad thing to have low cholesterol. Mine is still low but, I think, reasonable. Last testing, 149 (non-fasting). It originally was around 120-125. Look at it this way...you'll probably never have to worry about heart disease! Be more concerned with raising HDL......mine was in the 20's and now is just under 60.

Good luck and congratulations with the baby!


Cholesterol that is too low poses many health risks including, connective tissue disorders, chronic inflammation, cancer,. mental illness, depression, anxiety, and mortality. Not to mention that it decreases your ability to absorb fat-soluble vitamins.

In Topic: Gluten Free And Cholesterol Is Still Too Low.

I posted something similar to this a week ago. :) http://www.celiac.co...cholesterol/��I have low cholesterol (not as low as yours!) which is odd because my hypothyroidism causes high cholesterol... I guess in the celiac-hypothyroidism cholesterol battle, celiac wins. LOL

It sounds like cholesterol often stays low in celiacs. I've read the HDL will often rise a bit but that's it.





Thanks for your input. I read your thread and it does seem to be quite a challenge for us. It looks like I will be switching to whole milk and full fat meats during this pregnancy. Too bad, I thought the levels would normalize after being gluten free.
