Could Ggt Blood Test Be Elevated From Taking Lipitor

Answer

Hi Jane,

GGT is a test your doctor may use to check your liver function. Medications such as Lipitor can affect the function of your liver, so physicans perform this test every few months or so to make sure the medication isn't affecting or hurting your liver. It is normal for this test to be high when taking Lipitor, however, depending on how high it is will determine whether your doctor will keep you on the medication or not.

Thanks for your question!
