Response from Dr. Holodniy

I am not that concerned with your current numbers. They could certainly be the result of the truvada/sustiva combination. I would not be inclined to start any medications to treat the minimally elevated triglycerides or decreased HDL, and would recommend diet modification as the first step. Regarding the creatinine level, make sure you are drinking plenty of fluids and avoid taking any other medications that could affect kidney function if at all possible. Nothing to do regarding the ALT level at this point.
