Vl is < 40. I have come to terms with skinny & veiny arms
and legs, but lately I and other people have noticed deep
lines in my face becoming more noticable. I don't want to
look old and beyond my years because of the Meds. Is there
a combo of drugs that might work well without these changes?
Is lipodystrophy reversable? Thanks
Response from Dr. Fisher
You are probably on one of the best regimens in terms of these changes. The zerit though has been implicated more than we originally thought...do not make any changes unless you discuss this with your doc as I cannot recommend any alternative regimen that would reverse this. Indeed I cannot recommend anything that will reverse this problem.
We do not know how much of this is potentially reversible.
