is it uncommon to gain weight after being infected for 4 years without being on meds?
Response from Dr. Fisher
No it is not. The usual course of untreated HIV is for weight loss over time. But this usually does not happen until the disease begins to advance. You did not say how far along your HIV is, so I cannot speculate what is happening to you. If indeed your HIV infection is 4 years in duration and not in need of treatment then it is probably not advanced. So good luck in the future. AF
