I was diagnosed with celiac disease in 2003 after a routine blood test revealed total cholesterol levels at around 90 (135-200 normal). I went on a gluten free diet and assumed that the problem had corrected itself. I am currently 11 weeks pregnant and my most recent cholesterol test indicated total cholesterol level at 121. HDL 61, LDL 50. No surprise, I have low vitamin D as well.
Going gluten free is supposed to be curative of low cholesterol, isn't it? Have any of you struggled with low cholesterol even after being gluten free for a while? Will increasing HLD lower total cholesterol? Should I be eating cheeseburgers (gluten free of course)? What course of action have you taken to correct your cholesterol issues?
Your responses are greatly appreciated.
