So I jus found out I have genital herpes. For the past year I've been dealing with elevated liver enzymes. I've had tests and a gastro/colonoscopy. Nothing. Could the herpes cause it?
Anyone else have herpes and elevated liver functions?

More likely the medication for herpes.  Certain otc meds, alcohol, rx meds and genetics can effect your liver enzymes.   Did you ask your doctor?

She just found out she has it, so she wouldn't have been taking the medications prior to having her levels checked.

if you take a lot of IB or tylenol, your tests can come back like that...or other meds you mite be on too...i don't believe herpes itself will not cause an elevated liver enzyme

So sorry no answer but will keep you in my positive thoughts. Def a call to the doctor to gain more info as to why levels are elevated. Hang in there!

on the elevated liver enzymes....so many things can make you enzymes change. Drinking, weight, meds, you will have to check with your doctor and I am sorry I didn't know much
