Creatine and lipodistrophy
Feb 24, 2005

Can Creatine help in making some changes in the effects of lipodistrophy, accompanied by a regular excersice routine... I am taking medication, and some changes in my body have occured.. Thanks

Response from Dr. Henry

Some patients have reported that exercise can help. Results with creatine alone have been more variable in the experience my patients report to me. Switching off offending drugs (ie from D4T to abacavir or tenofovir) helps fairly consistently. Uridine supplemenation is also being evaluated in studies. KH

Side effects are HIV- or medication related?
