Uridine and lipo
Apr 19, 2006

I have contact this company dealing with the uridine, they will send me something I can read on the uridine. I wondered, since we are talking about kind if amino acid / suppliment, and not a chemical drug, can i start using it? I am currently on videx and viread and kaletra, thinking on doing suction surgery from uper shoulder , back (uper and lower) and to inject some of the fat to face, (can i inject also some of the fat to the elbow area or buttocks)?? and after getting pregnant, therefore i do not "touch" the abdominal area right now. So anyway, is it recomanded taking this uridine cause as mentioned earlier , after all its like a vitamin.

Thanks for your reply.

Response from Dr. Henry

Uridine is relatively expensive (in form of NucleomaXX costs 88 Euros/month plus shipping) and has not been studied other than in some pilot studies (whick look promising for fat loss). Larger studies (including one soon to open from the ACTG in the US) are really needed before the safety and efficacy can be further commented on based on published data. KH
