What is Lipo ? I have been on Videx,Zerit and Stocrin for about4 years and i was taken off this regimen and told about this Lipo.

Response from Dr. Henry

Lipo would generally refer to the condition(s) termed lipodystrophy that can involve fat loss (lipoatrophy) or fat gain or mixtures of both. There may be accompanying lipid/glucose abnormalities in the blood as well. Videx + Zerit have been associated particularly with fat loss abnormalities as well as other signs of mitochondrial toxicity such as lactic acidosis. KH

Stocrin and sleepiness
Lymph nodes and medications
