Hello,
Thank you for your question,
I’mCustomerand I’ll try to help you.
Pain in right side radiating to back is often due to liver & gall bladder pain.
Gall stone is a common cause.
Your enzymes are mild to moderately elevated.
Statin can also cause higher liver enzymes.
In this circumstances, an ultrasound would be helpful.
It would find out the condition of gall bladder, liver.
Please avoid fatty foods,alcohol if you take any.
I hope this information helps.
If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.
If you are satisfied, please rate my answer as good or excellent.
Regards.
