My cholesterol has shot up since taking prednisone. Has anyone else experienced this? My triglycerides are really high. I haven’t gained weight. I exercise/walk. My diet is low carb…no desserts, mostly egg whites, vegetables and protein. I have a small glass of wine with dinner…I can stop that. I have heard 3 tsp of Metamucil can lower cholesterol. Currently I am taking 15 mg of prednisone daily and my inflammatory markers have returned to normal. Will this resolve itself when I am on a really low dose?
