cholesterol and dupuytren~sq~s

no one has discussed a cholesterol link. my mother has this disease( severe- both hands- two surgery's), she is 75, she had very high cholesterol-600 and was treated for the cholesterol problem, and the disease has not progressed in the last several years. My sister has knots in one hand, also diagnosed with high cholesterol and is taking medication for the last year, no progression. I had surgery on my little finger two months ago, and have knots and cord thickening in the other hand. -guess what, i have high cholesterol- 289, eat no fats, etc. i wanted to put off medication, but i definitely see a correlation. anyone else?

Cholesterol

I thought your posting on a possible cholesterol link was interesting, and hope any answers you might receive will be done through the "Post Message" on this Patient Discussion Forum, so that more of us can share the knowledge.

protein and maybe cholesterol

My thoughts are that Dupuytren's is systemic in the body. We see it in the hands and feet but it is in other areas of the boby tissues to a much smaller degree. I have Dupuytren's in hands,feet and tendons of the legs making them tight and causing back problems. I do not have cholesterol problems. But what about LDL abnormalities? That is the so called bad cholesterol.

Medical professionals know that the condition is caused by abnormal protein deposits in these areas. I think it has something to do with the liver or the other systems of the body that affect the liver. Proteins are made in the liver and food intake is converted to proteins in the liver.

Dupuytren's in my opinion has never been studied in a serious manner. I'm sure there are many sincere medical people that are helping to a degree, but most of the help is treating symtoms superficially and with mixed results.

You will notice there is very little discussion on the cause(s). There is a lot of discussion about operations to regain mobility. So, there is virtually no knowledge on the subject in the medical community or the community in general.

We consume protein each day from various foods like meat, eggs, bread, beans, dairy products. Our liver also converts other non-protein foods into protein if it is needed by the body. Could there be reactions to certain foods because the liver or other organs are not functioning exactly right?

Hope this gives someone some ideas to look into real research.

Cholesterol

I have Dupuytren's Disease and have no problem with either my good or bad cholesterol. So I do not think -at least in my case that it is related. I have no health problems other then allergies and occasional Asthma brought on by the allergies.
