Hello,Do you have any symptoms? How long have you been on statin? Was there any liver function test earlier?
Been on statin about 1 year Simvastatin 40 MG .liver function 3 weeks ago. AST 64 and ALT 144. I did not drink from Sunday till Friday. Both dropped . But did they drop enough? D I need to STOP drinking completely?
Your results are just above the cut off value, not that high. The cause of this abnormality is most likely your drinking. You need to stop drinking to keep the level back to normal. Your meds can also cause these abnormality, so you may like to check back again in 3 months.
