Loss of weight

Jul 5, 2013

Dear Dr Vergel I am a South African diagnosed in 2004 with HIV. I have used centrum tablets my cd count will constantly go between 600-1000.Since I was diagnosed it never got to 500 but my biggest problem now is I have lost 9kg. I am now using Moringa powder since is winter and a part of my health has improved though my cd count dropped from 1030 to 780 which also the doctor confirmed I have lost weight. I now want to gain weight because is worrying me. I am thinking of even seeing the doctor to recommend ARVs.I do not want to be sick at all moreover to it I eat healthy and also use olive oil,lemon juice daily.

Response from Mr. Vergel

Start HIV treatment. You most probably gain most of what you have lost.

If not, send me an email in 6 months.
