I had extremely (10-12 x normal) elevated liver readings several years ago, and the doctors thought it was fatty liver disease. I knew it was caused by the statins that my (ex)cardiologist had me on (and kept raising the dose), so I found a compassionate female doc who was willing to listen. We had to eliminate the statins, I went on a strict vegetarian diet for a year, and finally we got my liver readings down to normal, where they have stayed until the diabetes, and even with 255 blood sugar when I was diagnosed, they were only slightly elevated. I know that millions of people have no problems with statins, but I guess I was one of the rarities. Although my cholesterol has stayed horrible, my doc was afraid to put me on ANY meds, but now with the diabetes diagnosis, she has put me on fish oil capsules and zetia (on a trial basis). We are going to re-test soon to see if any of it's working and to make sure my liver readings aren't going back up. It was a VERY scary time, and it was VERY slow to normalize. Short of liver biopsies, I had to have every test in the world... thankfully the readings went down before they had to resort to the biopsy. I still have to have a sonogram regularly to check on it.
