meds question
Feb 5, 2004

in general, after initiating hiv treatment, does loss of body tissue get worse, or better, if the person was showing losses prior to treatment?

Response from Dr. Moyle

Better....several studies have shown that fat mass increases by a kg or 2 in the first 24-36 weeks after treatment. Wheather you start to lose fat after that and how quick you lose fat depends on the regimen, genetics, your age, maybe your CD4


Graeme Moyle
