liver side efects

Aug 28, 2005

a chem test result shows AST 51 ALT 136 and GGT 68 in a abacavir and combivir therapy with viral load 220cpml and cd4 400 only with nausea.Abacavir should be retired or not?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

You don't indicate whether you have any other symptoms that might be associated with an abacavir reaction. You also don't indicate whether you hepatitis C virus infection or not or what other medications or other medical problems you might have. Given just those lab abnormalities, I would not change anything.
