Lipodystrophy without meds
May 20, 2003

Dear Doctors Could someone develop lipodystrophy without meds? Im positive since january/2000 and I dont take any medication but I notice that Im a little fat, especially round the belly, and I cant lose it in spite of working out and taking care with the food. Thanks

Response from Dr. Moyle

Essentially the answer is no. A little 'grab-able' fat around the middle is about as normal as can be and as we get older no matter how hard we try we are stuck with it. Best wishes Graeme
