What if you are alrady on med's and still loseing weight? what else could be wrong?
Response from Dr. Young
Thanks for your post.
Many factors can influenc weight in HIVers, not just medications or viral load. It's not unusual to see weight loss in persons with undetectable viral loads-- sometimes it's because of depression, other times because of anorexia (loss of appetite) or low testosterone levels.
If you're loosing weight, have a talk with your doctor to look for possible causes.
Best of luck, BY
