Elevated liver numbers

Feb 4, 2006

Yhanks for all your help.

I just started meds (Sustiva and Combivir) two weeks ago mainly due to low platelets 37,000. My cd4(19%) 324vl, 114,000,liver numbers were slighly elevated.

I do not drink or take any other meds other than kpax vitamins and dhea, q10.

My question is what could make the liver numbers go up.

Thank you.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

You don't indicate what you liver enzymes increased to, whether you also have HCV infection, and how much DHEA, and other nutritional supplements you are taking. It is unlikely, although possible your HIV med regimen would cause an elevation.
