lipodystrophy and wasting
Oct 3, 2007

Recently diagnosed poz (neg last year), noticed that lipodystophy and wasting forum is inactive this because the meds no longer cause this problem?

Response from Dr. Henry

Many HIV-lipodystrophy related questions are now directed to this forum. I don't make any decision about what forums are available/supported. In my own practice I am seeing less and less lipodytrophy as I have shifted any from using thymidine analogue reverse transcriptase inhibitors (D4T and AZT). KH

Loss of Lifetime Immunity?
Prilosec Cramps with Combivir/Viramune?
