hgh and testostrone

Nov 27, 2005

I've read of the benefits of injectable hgh increasing cd4 and the use of testostrone also. Have you seen or heard of any problems concerning their use with hiv? I was scanning the web and one site suggested that the use of these actually could increase hiv activity. is there any truth to this or just internet babble?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

I am not aware of any such issues. The published trials with testosterone and growth hormone show there are no signficant effects on HIV viral load.
