    I have a question. I am a Type I diabetic (of 36 years) as well as being diagnosed with celiac disease a little over a year ago. After reading information on this website, I went completely gluten free, since the standard GF diet was messing up my diabetes control and was not bringing my celiac titers down. I also stopped taking my statin medication and began using coconut oil and eating grass-fed beef. My last blood test finally showed my A1C level at a much better 6.5 and my Ttg was 2.0. However, my cholesterol numbers have gone up, and my endocrinologist wants me to go back on a statin. How do I know what the truth is in terms of what is safe for cholesterol (especially in the realm of Type I diabetes and heart disease risk)? Before the healthier changes of removing all grains and while I was still taking the statin, my cholesterol numbers were ideal, and my endocrinologist was pleased. Now the values are steadily increasing, and I'm not sure what to do. Any recommended resources or advice? Thanks!
