Response from Dr. Henry

You may need to see if your triglycerides are high and see if you have pancreatic insufficiency and other conditions associated with pancreatitis (such as some infections or other drugs or drainage problems). I sometimes switch HIV meds around to get the most fat friendly regimen or the least mitochondrial toxic regimen I can under the circumstances. Your HIV specialist it the best person to try and individualize your frustrating situations. I sometimes refer to a gastroenterologist, nutritionist, or pharmacist to get some help. KH
