My son is HIV+ or one year, neg for Hep C, immune to B and A and neg for toxo, etc. His last tests showed inc in his T cells to 700 and decrease in viral load to 18,000. He works out daily and takes multivitamins, 2 fish oil caps daily, selenium,and "immune support" from a health food store that is made from mushrooms. His Alt and AST went up to 80 and 120 after always being in the 30's. As a college senior, does his once weekly 'party' alcohol consumption account for this (he is worried sober now) or should we look at other sources besides alcohol? Is it the supplements? or the prozac he takes? thanks !

It could be related to alcohol or possibly some of the supplements he is taking. If he stays off the alcohol and continues the supplements and the numbers are still elevated, that is probably it. Unlikely prozac by itself would do it.
