|Lipodystrophy & Anabolic Medications
May 1, 2000
What is your opinion on using anabolic medications with exercise as a treatment for lipodystophy?
How does mitochondrial toxicity play a role in lipodystrophy?
And have you seen a significant decrease in HDL levels on this type of therapy?
Response from Dr. Dieterich
Mitochondrial tox may indeed be the major issue in lipodystrophy, but not the only one. Protease inhibitors play a role as well by increasing triglycerides and glucose.
When you change the meds that may be causing mito tox the cholesterol and triglcerides definitely decrease. HDL may or may not change, exercise may the best may to increase HDL. Douglas T. Dieterich, M.D.
