medication and protein supplement

Jan 7, 2014

I workout daily and into body bbuilding since last 4 years, can I comsume WHEY Protein ( no supplimente of steroids)?

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for posting.

Assuming that you have normal kidney function (important anyways, since you're taking tenofovir), the consumption of whey protein shouldn't cause any problems.

Be sure to let your care provider know about all the supplements and vitamins you take so that you can be monitored appropriately.

Be well, BY

Complera (eviplera) and hydration.
Great meds!! But are we closer to a real cure at all?
