does hiv effect liver functions itself not through hcv

Response from Dr. McGovern

Some patients without viral hepatitis may have abnormal liver function tests. This can be due most commonly to medications. Another concern may be steatohepatitis, fat in the liver.

If you liver function tests are persistently abnormal, you may want to speak with your physician about a referral to a liver specialist.
