Response from Dr. Holodniy

You don't indicate what HIV medications you are taking and how long you have been on them. Your HIV meds could certainly be associated with these abnormal results. The urine test doesn't really indicate any significant abnormalities. The blood tests could be early warning signs that something is developing. But hard to say for certain without another repeat set of tests and knowing whether some other ongoing medical condition might be going on.
