Any one else have their total cholesterol and HDL drop suddenly? I haven't been gluten free (test Friday), but it dropped from 182 to 150 and the hdl (suppose to be greater than 50) dropped from 47 to less than 15 in 4 months.

Ouch! That total drop in cholesterol was all HDL :o Something funny is going on there, but I have no idea what. My cholesterol has remained the same -- always a little too high, but that's because my HDL is really high.

I think I remember reading how treated celiacs cholesterol can get worse once your gut heals because you can absorb the "bad" stuff now too. I'm afraid I can't remember the source though.

I hope you find answers.

Whoa, back up, take a deep breath. Retest before you panic.

The only I found was taking testosterone.
