liver damage from STATINS

my chloeresal is well over 350
my triglicerizes are well over 500

been that way for many years,
decades even. i am 62yrs, started
ckg blood fats since i was 20yr.
have severe fibromyalgia (so no
exercise here) can barely get
around. fall a lot, but
now i have Titan (collie boy,
service/seizure alert/mobility)
so, he is a big help against
injuries.

i also am a alpha-1 baby. that
is alpha-1 antitrypsen defiecency.

that occurs from the 'liver' not
producing enough trypsen. this
has caused me to have CHF and
COPD. inherited, no smoking.

so, i am agraid of statins. i
don't want to die from liver damage.

HELP!!

thanks,
doveinpain

I have no idea of the type of potential liver problems from statins has any relationship to the to lack of tryspen. It might compound that problem or might be completely unrelated.

You really need to talk to a liver and/or lipid specialist.
