Benjamin Young, M.D., Ph.D,
how long after a person is infected is weight loss usually seen, is it accompanied by other symptoms? Do hiv meds help gain weight back that was lost?---thanks
Response from Dr. Young
This is tough to answer in specifics, but usually persons who are HIV infected will take several years (usually more than 5) before seeing any significant symptoms (like weight loss).
Yes, HIV medications can definitely help this situation. BY
