Hi Sal,

I also have high cholesterol. I take Crestor for it. I take fish oil also, for artery problems and thickening my dr, says is related to the lupus. Another draw back, from a late diagnosis.

I did have high cholesterol before starting on pred. It doesn't run in my family, neither does diabetes, which I also have. I had it before taking pred, also.

I believe these are directly related to my having lupus..

I take low dose aspirin also. Plaquenil has slight blood thinning properties also.

Best Wishes,
