Virammune and Kivexa
Mar 3, 2006
Have recently switched from Combivir/Kaletra to Virammune/Kivexa therapy. My blood sugar levels have increased from 5.6 to 7.6 Hb1aC in just four months. Does this have anything to do with the new regime?
Response from Dr. Young
Thanks for your post.
In general, the combination of nevirapine (Viramune) and abacavir/3TC (Kivexa, Epzicom) is not thought to cause much problems with insulin resistance or diabetes (as measured by your glycohemoglobin level). BY
