Response from Mr. Vergel

You are on a very effective drug combo. Many people gain weight after starting HAART. Some lose fat under the skin at the same time. Have you got a BIA test to find out your body composition? I do not know what your height and frame size is to tell you if your weight is within normal range. Are you working out and keeping your protein intake at at least 0.5 grams per pound of body weight per day? Nelson
