Over active liver enzyme and eye floaters

Feb 14, 2006

I am 26, and have a CD4 of 446 and Viral of 110,000 or so and not on medication.

I have an over active liver enzyme which flucuates but am not on HIV medication. I recently have had eye floaters in my left eye and am concerned that this is a problem related to my liver. I am having my eyes tested jsut to check my my Doctor looked in them the other ay and siad that it was not a detached retina?

Let me know if i should worry? and what the cmoplications are?

Thanks for your help.

Response from Dr. Young

Thanks for your post.

I'm no ophthamologist (I can barely spell the word, anyways), but as far as I know there's no relationship between liver inflammation (elevated liver function tests) and visual floaters. BY
