    Hi Ann,

     

    I did a quick check and did not find elevated cholesterol as a typical side effect of cortisone. Cholesterol levels elevate as part of the healing process and maybe that is linked to what you are experiencing, but that is just a guess. I recommend investigating further with your physician.

     

    All the best,
