    very high cholesterol?

    I have ulcerative colitis(uc), and watch my diet, but just found I have very high cholesterol. Can that somehow be connected to uc? Thanks!

    no, but it could be connected with possible liver issues.

    How are your other blood tests such as liver enzymes?

    Are you on any other meds?

    Re: very high cholesterol?

    A possible connection is that UC is autoimmune, and Sometimes other autoimmune disorders coexist. If you had Hashimoto 's thyroiditis with hypothyroidism, you could get a high cholesterol from that until your thyroid levels are corrected. But most cholesterol problems are hereditary and diet related. If you are on Prednisone, that can raise cholesterol, so it could be treatment related.
