facial wasting and avandia

Jan 14, 2011

will avandia be helpful. i have switched from stavudine to tenofovir for the past one year six months. the lipo has stopped progressing I want to use avandia to regain lost body and facial fat. thank you

Response from Dr. Pierone

Avandia is a medication for treatment of diabetes mellitus and some early studies suggested that it might improve lipoatrophy. Larger follow-up studies have not shown benefit of this agent. In addition, this medication has been linked to a greater risk of heart attacks so it poses significant risks.

Thanks for posting and good luck!
