In brief: Who knows?

You present a unique group of disorders in which statins have never been tested.
Individually, none of your disorders, including your liver disease, are contraindications to rosuvastatin. I would start it and check ck, alt and ast (the known toxicities) at 6 weeks and 6 months.
