HCV and low cholesterol pre-tx

I didn't want to hijack nygirl7's thread on a related subject, but on the opposite end of the spectrum, so I will post my question/concerns here.

I believe it was Bobby1952 that mentioned having a low cholesterol test pre tx. Mine has been consistently low for at least 10 years (when I began having it tested annually). By low, I mean 109 - 110 with little wavering. I always assumed that was great especially since my LDL, HDL and Triglycerides were good too. Since of the first of the year in two separate blood tests, the total cholesterol remained low, and the LDL was good, but my HDL tanked and triglycerides elevated. Also my fasting blood sugar is staying elevated (120). My next appointment - a referral to a liver doc is not til October 20th.

Any ideas if this is liver related or perhaps indicative of "metabolic syndrome" that I have been hearing about?
Thanks for any thoughts on this subject.
