Driven Crazy By Aids Belly - Is There A HGH Alternative?
Nov 18, 2010

Is there anything that can be taken for AIDS belly other than HGH, which is not affordable or even indicated for this condition? I tried everything, even a tummy tuck which failed. The serostin clinical trials made it go away. Trials ended, it came back. Anything bio-identical?

Response from Mr. Vergel

I have written a summary review of the different options here:

As you probably know, Egrifta (tesamorelin) was recently approved by the FDA as a treatment of HIV related abdominal fat accumulation. It won't be available until January and we have no idea how much it will cost and if insurance companies/Medicare will pay for it. More on Egrifta: Summary links on Egrifta
