i am hiv+ for 14 years. and ive always had a weight probem. ive recently lost 80 lbs using metabolife. im 5ft 6in and still weigh 164. i was wondering if there is any side effects to using the metabolife. so far im still healthy. im on epivir, zerit and viramune. thank you.
Response from Dr. Dieterich
Don't really know about metabolife but I hope you were trying to lose weight. I would not recommend losing anymore. If you continue to lose I would ask your MD to check your serum lactate level to see if you are having mitochondrial toxicity. Good luck! DTD
