vitamin b12 help lipo?
May 17, 2005
I would just like to ask if it's true that vitamin b12 helps stop the progression of lypodistrophy. I,ve read it on some sites. I am currently on viramune and combivir and are tolerating them quite well the only problem being my skinny legs and bloated stomach. Please write any useful advice quite desperate
