I'm 39, used viracept/combivir for about 10years, and now, for a year, truveda, and two others (two orange pills, on italian oval shape pill with liquid in it). Until last november, I looked fine. Even this past march when I went on a trip. Then this summer, i really noticed my legs knees getting bony, legs revealing more tendons than flesh, arms less full (subtly) than before. Now, even within past month, I noticed that my eye sockets recessed (i went to a wedding month an a half ago, didn't notice this). Is this lypodystrophy or just getting old? How can I know if it is early lypodystrohpy, or just getting old? And the speed at which this transformation occured, especially to the face - is this normal? Basically, I look in the mirror and don't recognize my face all of a sudden, which is the last straw (don't recognize my legs either).

Response from Mr. Vergel
