Response from Dr. Rodriguez-Torres

It is difficult with so scarse information.It seems that you have some increase in the GGTP that may suggest some hepatic inflammatory process. You should have HCV antibody test and the HIV test if you have risk factors.You need to remember that many other diseases besides HIV or HCV cause increased GGTP.
