Response from Dr. Moyle

If you can stay off therapy longer that may help but make sure you are carefully monitored so you don't get sick. One possibility here is growth hormone, hard to access but good at shifting fat accumulations and building butts. Certainly I think you should also see a dietitian and consider a diet and exercise programme to try and shift fat. Unfortunately, there are no 'quick fix' answers to this problem Regards Graeme Moyle
