Can Ra Cause High Cholesterol

Answer

RA doesn't directly cause high cholesterol. It is very important that you have a team to help correct this. And by team I mean your primary doctor and your rheumatologist need to work together to fix this issue. If you are having problems with high Cholesterol you need to really talk to your primary doctor on what course of action to take. The diet a lot of doctors will put you on for high cholesterol will actually benefit your RA as well. If you can, eat a lot of fish which is high in Omega 3 fatty acids. This will not only help with your cholesterol, but it will help with your RA as Omega 3 fatty acids have natural inflammation reducers in them. Good luck and best wishes!
