Lipo = hiv

Jan 5, 2010

Hi Dr. Frascino I made a donation... and I would love for you the answer the last question about lipoatrophy as an hiv symptom. If someone was experiencing hiv and didn't know there hiv status. Does the lipo guarantee being hiv positive? I asked a longer questions about a week ago.

Response from Dr. Frascino


"Lipo" does not "guarantee" someone is HIV positive! The only thing that guarantees being HIV positive is a positive HIV antibody test!!! It really is just that simple and straightforward.

Thanks for the donation to The Robert James Frascino AIDS Foundation!

Be well. Happy 2010.

Dr. Bob

need good luck karma
Happy New year
