how can i get my body back to normal after loosing fat because of using triomune 40

Response from Dr. Henry

That is a tough question since often there are not many other choices of switching the HIV meds in area which are using Triomune(in US would switch D4T or AZT which is often in the generic 3 in one products to abacavir or tenofovir). Putting weight (often fat has been lost) back on can be a real challenge. Diet, exercise, hormone replacement if low variably helps some patients. Checking for other causes of weight loss (hidden infections) is also important. There is alot of reseach effort going into what can be done to help regain fat if that is the problem though no effective drug is now available for that purpose. KH
