is it possible to gain 10 kg weight to a asymaptomatic hiv patient withouts any meds?

Response from Dr. Young

Hello,

I'm not sure how your title relates to your question, maybe I'm the dumb one- I'm not sure I understand your question.

Yes, it's entirely possible for one to gain weight without meds, particularly for one who is asymptomatic (that is to say, without significant AIDS-related issues). Just like the general population in the US that stuggles with increasing rates of obesity, we are seeing similar trends among people living well with HIV.
