In my opinion high cholesterol tend to accumulate in liver and gives fatty liver changes. These fat deposition causes slight ekevation of hepatic enzymes with out much symptoms. So get done Ultrasound of abdomen for the diagnosis of fatty liver. And if it is there than try to loose weight, avoid fat in diet, regular exercise and start statins after consulting doctor.
