ABSTRACT

Atorvastatin is the more potent drug to treat the hyperlipidemia patients. Unfortunately this drug has got hepatotoxicity and hence the patients on statin treatment have to be monitored for Liver function test frequently. This study is used to find the hepatotoxic effect of atorvastatin in hyperlipidemic patients. This study is planning to do the following biochemical parameters. Glucose ,Urea ,Creatinine , Uric Acid , Sodium , Potassium Chloride , Bicarbonate , Cholesterol , High Density Lipoprotein , Triglycerides , Ratio , Total Bilirubin , Serum Glutamic Pyruvate Transaminase , Alkaline Phosphatase , Gamma-glutamyl transpeptidase , Total Protein , Albumin Globulin.

KEYWORDS
