I've been taking celexa (citalopram) for 4 years and my dr thinks it could be causing my liver function #'s to be 'borderline'. True?

In brief: Unless there is

Some underlying issue this would be considered unusual at best.
Are you obese? Any other meds? Any family history of diabetes? Do you drink alcohol regularly? There's other things that need considered, especially sugar starting.

In brief: Borderline

Not sure what their term borderline means in this context, viz.
whether this is a new finding, something that has been associated with the administration of the drug from the start, whether this is the one and only time it has been discovered etc. Discuss with your doctor about reassessment depending on the context to put both your minds at ease.
