Response from Dr. Young
Thanks for your question.
It's not clear if you you're below ideal body mass (wieght) or not-- if you're otherwise healthy and eating well (actually eating more than your predicted caloric needs) then you'll gain weight. Make sure that your testosterone level is in the normal range, since this can be abnormal in some HIV-infected persons and contribute to weight loss.
As for "bulking" up, I tend to leave this in the realm of the physical trainers-- I don't recommend unneeded use of anabolics given their cost and risks to health. BY
