Liver function tests to High
Jul 8, 2012

S-ALKALINE PHOSPHATATE 123IU/L S-GLUTAMYL TRANSFERASE 330 IU/L S-ALT 201 S-AST 64

on LAMZID (5yrs) Stocrin(3yrs) moved to Nevirapine(2yrs)

cd4 cell count 1095/ul vl not detectable

Please help

Response from Dr. Holodniy

You don't indicate what your liver test results were prior to changing to nevirapine, or whether these have remained elevated throughout the course of taking nevirapine or have just increased recently. Although it could be associated with nevirapine, it is hard to conclude with a single lab result, and many other things (infections, meds, etc) can cause an elevation of these blood tests.
