Would you tell me if repeated findings of elevated enzyme levels in the liver could be a sign of HIV infection. I've been told by several doctors over the course of 10 years that I have these elevated enzyme levels but that they are nothing to worry about. What could be the cause of this? Thank you for answering.

During acute HIV infection for a few weeks, you can have elevated liver enzymes. To see this chronically for 10 years would be extremely unlikely. I assume you have been tested for hepatitis B and C viruses? MH
