    Association study on two vitamin D receptor gene polymorphisms and vitamin D metabolites in multiple sclerosis.
    Smolders J, Damoiseaux J, Menheere P, Tervaert JW, Hupperts R.
    Ann N Y Acad Sci. 2009 Sep;1173:515-20.
    PMID: 19758194
    DOI: 10.1111/j.1749-6632.2009.04656.x

    Total Cholesterol: 201
    Triglycerides: 263
    HDL: 62
    LDL: 86

    After I stopped eating gluten (I am very sensitive), my lipid panel improved slightly. This past year I started eating to keep my blood sugar under control by eliminating sugars and other grains. Now this is my most recent lab:

    Total Cholesterol: 162
    Triglycerides: 80
    HDL: 71
    LDL: 75
