Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thank you for your post.

Perhaps the knowledge that the majority of persons with HIV who take current HAART regimens don't experience severe side effects or lipodystrophy will be helpful.

For those who develop lipoatrophy, there are treatments (though not universally available or covered by insurance).

This would be a good opportunity for our readers to share their experiences- good or bad.
