Belly Fat

Dec 6, 2010

Hi, I am a 51 year old man living with HIV. I am grateful to be alive. However, the effects of the various medications and the lipodystrophy/lipoatrophy has had a devastating affect on my body and self esteem. Is there anything on the horizon that will have any lasting affect on the excess belly fat? I have been doing the sit-ups in various positions for quite some time now and it is obvious that they do work. But the muscle just sits there on top of the fat. Your response will be greatly appriciated.

Response from Mr. Vergel

Yes, Egrifta was recently approved for belly fat. We will have it available in January. Here are some posts:
