buffalo hump
Mar 9, 2006

Dear doctor, can i inject the back of my neck with TRIAC or CARDISPAN to quit the fat coused by the d4t tratment? Thanks very much for your attention ENRICO

Response from Dr. Henry

I have no experience with injections into buffalo hump with those products. From what I can understand from an internet search injection of those fat products into fat would not be advised.Switching off offendng medications or plastic surgery invention are options to be considered. Use of growth hormone or growth hormone releasing factors or an oral diabetic drug or testosterone supplementation (in men) are under study for effectiveness and safety for treating fat increases in the setting of HIV treatment.
