level is high (Total) , but you need to know how
much was HDL and how much was LDL which is the bad one.
If your HDL (Good cholesterol) is high, that is good.
I am not sure about the results of your liver
Were all the enzymes high, like SGPT,SGOT
,ALT etc ?
If your liver tests are abnormal, Lipitor
may make it worse.
If the blood was drawn the next day after a rich meal like
crab legs with butter etc, yes, your cholesterol level could be
elevated because of that.
Discuss these with your doctor.
I wish you well.
