Thank you for visiting

An cholestrol of 8.3 is very high and needs to be treated correctly. There are medication that does not affect your liver but gets excreted through the kidneys. I do however, suggest that if you are on some form of medication, you should have your organs tested every three months, i.e. liver function test, kidney function test.

It is very important to exercise regularly and to try and control your cholestrol as much as possible, with the correct diet.

Kind regards

Aspavor is the generic of Lipitor. I would imagine that as long as you have regular liver function tests you should be fine. This is one of the top medications for treating high cholesterol levels.

What dose are you taking? Does your doctor treating your cholesterol know about your syndrome you developed? If he/she does then they would more than likely do regular liver function tests to monitor your liver.
