Response from Dr. Henry

Sounds like you have a challenging situation for which there may be no easy answers. Hopefully you are connected to a user friendly HIV specialist who knows the details of your situation and can work to address both your HIV issues as well as the important problems of neuropathy and liposytrophy. For many patients an HIV regimen can be used that at least does not further aggravate the other problems though access to alternative regimens is limited in many regions of the world. KH
