    Question How many of you have high serum Triglycerides? (Cholesterol)

    Hi everyone,

    I am curious to see how many of you have had high serum triglycerides or high cholesterol when you have had "flares" of autoimmune activity (undiagnosed or diagnosed)? I found out that high triglycerides in the cholesterol count in someone that is not on prednisone can be caused by Lupus Nephritis. Lupus Nephritis is the inflammation of the kidneys. Also, if someone is on prednisone and has high serum triglycerides that can be from the prednisone or other immune suppressant drugs. Thought I would throw that at you to see how many of you have had it high! Take care

    ~Luv, Angelic

    Once again Angelic,
    You're right! I am one of those people who am not on Prednisone, and my triglycerides were at 221 (normal range is under 150). I was told to watch my diet and exercise. It's not always easy when your muscles and joints are always hurting. You have always said that my kidney function blood tests were bad and that you strongly believed I had lupus nephritis. My cholesterol is also high - 221. Is it coincidence that they're the same number? Yet, when I saw my neurologist, I told him I was concerned about my kidneys and he keeps blowing me off by saying that these numbers are "normal" for me. I'd like to take all of my bloodwork results and bring them to a specialist in New Jersey or New York. Were you able to get any names of lupus specialists? I think it's time for a second opinion. Thanks. Shari
