|Am I wasting
Mar 1, 2000
HI, I'M 4 MONTHS PREGNANT AND I THINK I HAVE HIV/AIDS. SEE I ONLY WEIGH 104, YOU CAN SEE THE BONE STRUCTURE IN MY FACE (IT FEELS AS IF MY SKIN IS STUCK TO MY BONE),MY ARMS ARE REALLY SKINNY, AND MY SKIN FEELS LIKE ELASTIC. I CAN FEEL NO FAT ON MY BODY. I AM SO SCARED. I AM RAPIDLY LOSING WEIGHT YET I EAT ALL THE TIME. WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME?
Response from Dr. Dieterich
You should certainly get tested for HIV and all other causes of weight loss like thyroid disease. Don't be scared, medicine can do a lot these days and think of the baby. The sooner you get treatment, the healthier the baby will be! Good Luck! Douglas T. Dieterich, M.D.
