WAnted to make sure I was on an OK regime. Truvada, Norvir and Reyataz. Also, are either of the three a bigger risk for Lipoatrohy or dystrophy than other drugs.
Response from Dr. Wohl
What happens to lipids with the addition of Norvir to Reyataz is not clear. Certainly, some increase in lipids are likely. Believe it or not there are very limited data about this. I suspect any increase is modest and better than most other Norvir boosted protease inhibitors.
As to body shape we have even less data on boosted Reyataz. Truvada should not risk body shape problems.
On the whole, I would say this is a potent regimen which probably does not have a major impact on lipids or glucose handling. There is just not enough data to indicate what it does as far as body shape.
