skinny legs...plz anwser
Apr 12, 2001

I have lost most if not all the fat in my legs they look like "bird legs" and are very veiny like ropes. I execersise as much as possible. I was wondering since the weight gained in takeing Magace is mostly fat not muscle, do you think that would help ?

Response from Dr. Boyle

Unfortunately, no. Some of my patients have tried it and it exacerbated their abdominal fat gain without doing anything for their peripheral wasting. Read other posts for some suggestions for things that might be worth a try. BB
