About to know Serostim
Mar 27, 2012

Hello Doctor. I'm from India and today i read in this website about Serostim( Human growth Hormone) .I'm Hiv + since 2008 and now i take Viraday mediciens. I want to used Serostim Here in India in avilable and How i take this please advised me Hope and wait

Response from Dr. McGowan

I have found little need for serostim. It has generally been advocated for people who have developed lipodystropht, particularly lipohypertrophy, when weight gain occurs internally, surrounding the intestines or between the shoulder blades. This condition has not been seen as a side effect of viraday. I would look for more natural alternatives instead.
