High ALT levels in relationship to HIV are due to the high toxicity of HAART. Since you don't have HIV, it would seem unlikely that this has anything to do with HIV.

High ALT levels can be seen for a varieity of reasons. A few

Hep C
Cirrohsis or as a warning sign, from extended periods of drinking.
Diabeties
etc.
Many medications other than HAART; such as Lipitor or overuse of over-the-counters such as Tylenol.

The only thing you know for sure is that this isn't caused by HIV. Continue to work with your doctor to determine the cause.
