elevated sgpt doc
May 19, 2012
My sgpt level is high at 174 today, it is at 39 in november. Can early hiv cause elevated sgpt(exposed 9 months ago)?
Response from Dr. McGovern
It can cause some abnormal liver function tests, but I would be more concerned about Hepatitis B or C. Both can be acquired through injection drug use and through unprotected sex.
Would definitely get tested for both along with repeat liver function tests.
