Dropped 45 pounds, look great, feel rotten
Oct 28, 1999
I'm seeing my HIV doctor next week. I'm vomiting at least twice a week. Feel rotten. I'm on videx, viramune, zerit. My GI specialist has me on no "leafy" greens, no caffine, no milks, with metamucil and ultrase. Which has stopped my diarrehea, but not my nausea and vomiting. My Tcells have been dropping and my viral load climbing.
Thanks for all your help, B.
Response from Dr. Dieterich
Dear B, Computer diagnosis of your complex problems is difficult at best. However, I would ask about gastritis and try lowering the acid level in your stomach and ask to be checked for h. pylori, which can cause gastritis and ulcers. Don't know enough about your HIV history to comment on that therapy. GOOD LUCK! Douglas T. Dieterich, M.D.
