My cholesterol level remains really high and I'm at a loss. I don't have a family history. I don't eat a high fat diet because of my Gastropareis (GI disorder) and I'm not overweight anymore. I don't exercise much but I haven't for years. I'm not sure my GP believes that I'm not scoffing high fat foods but honestly, my stomach is so bad that I would violently vomit it back up.
Rheum wondered if it might be the combination of MTX and lefluonomide and has taken me of the lef but it has a long half life, so it will be a while before I see any changes. I'm not keen to go on statins due to the side effects.
Has anyone else had an unexplained high cholesterol? I am not worried because my risk of cardiovascular disease is low but my GP is pushing me to address it. I don't know what else I can do!
