My cholesterol was low on my blood test. I guess don't eat enough or my body doesn't make enough. Has anyone ever heard of this before?

My cholesterol was very low when I was in the 2 year UC flare. I chalked it up to overall poor health. Since surgery all of my blood work is perfect. I wouldn't be concerned about it unless your doctor points out you need improvement.

I got the bloodwork done 1 week after I started flaring very bad, but everything else was "normal" except for high proteins. I can see why the results were like this b/c i eat lots of lean mean and not much fat at all.
