Bodybuilding Supplements Affect on Viral Load

Aug 31, 2005

Dear Dr. Horwath:

I was diagnosed HIV+ in 2003. I am 42 years old and have a CD4 of 800 and an undetectable viral load thanks to Combivir and Viramune. I have been weight training for two years now and workout in the gym 4 to 5 days a week. Now for my question: Is there a negative effect of bodybuilding supplements like Creatine, Celltech, etc. on the viral load?

Response from Dr. Horwath

Not to my knowledge.

However, anabolic steroids can be quite dangerous.

what is hiv dementia? what are its symptoms.
