liver problems

Mar 6, 2005

my brother just told me that he is hiv+. He has known for 4 months. He hasn't started treatment as of yet but he has spoken with a doctor. He was told that there is something wrong with his liver.Is this an affect of the hiv?

Response from Dr. Young

Thanks for your post.

While HIV itself doesn't usually cause liver problems, there are a host of associated conditions, like hepatitis viral infections, drug toxicity and others that could be causing your brother's issues.

I'd need more details to give more precise information. Write back if you still have questions, and good luck to your brother. BY

Thank you
