Weight loss
Oct 20, 2016

Afternoon (Thanks for all the help and support). I just started treatment. I'm taking TRUVADA + REYATAZ + NORVIR since 1.5 months ago and I'm losing weight but I do eat and have no problem with apatite. When I started treatment I was 178 lbs. and now I am 167 lbs. What could be a problem?

Thanks in advance.

Response from Mr. Vergel

If you are eating the same amount of food and you are not exercising more, there could be a hormone related issue or you are eating healthier food.

Norvir boosted regimens are not known for causing unintentional weight loss.

Have your doctor check your thyroid and testosterone hormones to see if there are any imbalances with those two hormones (TSH, free T3, free T4, total and free testosterone).

Please let me know what you find out.

In health,
