Two women in our family practice were found to have HDL >100 mg/dL after starting bisphosphonates. Previous HDLs were in the 40s. Is this a common occurrence?

I have not seen this in our practice, nor do I find reports in the literature. Perhaps other readers can share their experiences in this regard (pro or con) with us.
