Dental Problems and diarrhea
Feb 23, 2005

Hi, after 3 years taking Combivir and Stocrin I am having dental problems (periodontitis) and diarrhea. Viral load undet. and T-Cells around 700. Are these problems due to the medicines or the virus? Thanks!

Response from Dr. Henry

Generally, effective HIV treatment has resulted in improved oral health. Many patients without HIV or treatment of HIV have dental problems so usually other factors contribute to a greater degree than HIV related factors. KH
