How can I get mor fat in my face?
Jul 6, 1999

I have been off PI's for a year, now, taking Viramune, Videx and Zerit. I continue to stuggle to keep my weight up, even though I work out 4X a week and take 200mg testosterone every two weeks. I am really seeing a sunken look in my face -- no fat or fullness anywhere. Also protruding veins in arms, legs and face. Can anything restore subcutaneous fat?

Response from Dr. Fisher

Nothing yet has been shown to restore subcutaneous fat unfortunately. Alvan Fisher, M.D.
