Lypidistrophy and complera

Mar 1, 2013

I know that Complera is a fairly new drug. However, How likely is it that I'll have lipodystrophy in the future.

Response from Dr. Young

Hi and thanks for posting.

The medications in Complera are not associated with increased risk of developing body fat changes.

Be mindful that there are other risk factors for lipodystrophy- importantly one's lowest ever CD4 count is a major determinate, so waiting to start therapy actually increases the risk.

Hope that helps, BY
