Nope metabolic panel is for renal and hepatic function -- considering I am on a statin, that's a biggie.

And yes, I got lipids too ... hopefully better than LAST TIME! :eek:

I requested full results (my internist just sends a postcard :mad:) -- will share when I get em!

Does statin affect the functions of the kidneys and the liver?

Are you on statins because of cholesterol? Isn't your low carb diet effective in bringing down the cholesterol without the help of statins? Was the low carb diet effective in at least bringing down triglycerides?

Yes, I am on the max dose of simvastatin (prescribed by my EX-endo), due to a long history of high LDL and low HDL, after about 4 mos of low-carbing. SIGH. I want to lower that ... hoping that the diet is working in my favor.

My Tgs were never measured high, however. One reason I requested antibody testing.

And yes, people on statins should have liver enzymes tested, AT LEAST annually.
