Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for your post.

Sorry to hear about your kidney injury from the tenofovir (Viread). It is a good idea to switch off of tenofovir should this happen. Fortunately, for the vast majority of cases, kidney function returns to normal.

It should be fine to take testosterone replacement with your regimen- indeed, low testosterone levels are common among persons living with HIV (and those who take HIV medications).

FWIW, the testo has no particular relationship with your KS>

Best of health to you, BY
