Supplements for Lipodystrophy
Feb 5, 2004

Are there any supplements for lipodystrophy, if not, is there anyway to gain the fat lost due to lipodystrophy?

Response from Dr. Moyle

No supplements have been reported to help. There are several studies looking at supplements such as carnitine, co-Q10 and b vitamins but no supportive data as yet. Fta gain has been reported in 3 studies after switch d4T or AZT to abacavir. This at the moment is the only treatment where benefit has been consistently observed regards Graeme Moyle
