Rapamycin, Statins and effect on liver enzymes

I take statins to lower my cholesterol levels and my liver enzymes have been always low. I did a lipid panel 12 hours after taking 5 mg of Rapamycin, and the liver enzyme levels went up (a little bit above normal range, 65), then they came down to low levels after a week.

Is it normal for liver enzymes to go up with Rapamycin? Can those effects, although temporary, be damaging to the liver?


Hi @Bernardo_Rodriguez and welcome to the forum :wave:
My ALT and AST have increased since taking Rapa. I’ll be interested to hear other’s experiences.
