I noticed that since I started taking ARTs my body shape has changed. I have acculmlated fat on my back of neck, my stomach and my arms.I have lost alot of fat on my battocks which makes me shapless. What can I do to re-gain my shape?
Response from Dr. Henry
To comment further need details about your HIV regimen, age, CD4 count (current and lowest), activity level, weight changes, other meds, where you are located (drug accessibility issues),body shape of family members since those factors (and others) influence the cause and management of body shape changes.
