Hi all, I have severe endo (ovarian chocolate cysts, endo on bowel etc) but touch wood, so far don't suffer from much pain. Due to infertility, I've now had 3 laps, none of which have had any permanent helpful effects! However recently, I've also been found to have high cholesterol. Note, I am not on any drugs for endo. I've done a bit of web research & found a couple of studies that found higher cholesterol levels in women with endo, so am wondering whether others have experience of this & if so, how have you been treated? Has anyone found a specialist or doctor that will talk about both, as in my experience I've been sent off to gynae for endo, and a lipid guy for cholesterol & they each want to treat the symptom separately (apart from I won't take statins as am still trying to conceive!). Neither specialist has even asked me about the other condition so they obviously don't see any links but I'm not convinced.
I'd love to know if anyone has also experienced both & has any ideas on how to take on both conditions- am wondering what a endo-cholesterol diet would look like!
