1- Found a Cornell U. website and thought since that is your background I would ask if you do not mind- It stated that a 3 month window period for hiv antibody detection is 99.9% accurate.
2-What is lythrodysphy -is it something that ANYONE can get or related to hiv medications regime?
Response from Dr. Boyle
The information contained on the site is correct. Lipodystrophy can occur in HIV-infected patients even if they have not been on antiretrovirals, but antiretrovirals may increase the tendency and perhaps the severity of that condition. BB
