i am hiv + and my meds have caused lipodystrophy, my meds have been changed and i was told the lipo would decrease within 3 years, now 4 years have gone by and i have now received treatment of nufill for my face and temples and have noticed a little facial improvement but still i have uneven fat distribution in my arms and legs and still enlarged abdomen, can you reccomend anything , diet ,excercise or further treatments

Response from Dr. Henry

No easy answers. Still awaiting long term results from studies with some diabetes meds and Nucleomaxx but for now cannot with any confidence make a firm recommendation for a treatment that will normalize fat distribution problems such as fat loss. KH
