Weight gain

Nov 29, 2011

Hai Doc,I'm a lady of 36 nd been diagnosed hiv pos 6yrs now,i'm on ARV 's and i lost weight.I want to regain my weight back what can i do .YARIS

Response from Dr. Young

Hello Yaris and thanks for posting.

There are many causes of weight loss- ranging from diet to mental health to drug toxicity (just to name a few).

If you've had significant weight loss (or failure to gain back the weight you lost while ill), you should let your health care provider know of your concerns.

I know that's just a start, but hope that it helps, BY

HIV Specialist or Primary Care Doctor or Both?
