Welcome to Healthcare Magic,

Monitoring of LFTs has become common practice during treatment with statins even though there is little evidence to support systematic hepatotoxicity due to statin therapy.

You should reconsider repeating the tests again if the liver enzymes elevated more than 3 times of the normal limits.

But considering the above mentioned values in your query doesnt signify any serious liver damage.

One thing for sure is avoid as much as possible the intake of alcohol and fatty foods.
