fat fat fat....
Jul 14, 2010

I take reyataz norvir and truvada. I have fat on my gut breast back and hump. I am only 5'3" almost 200lbs. I work out 5 to 6 times a week for 1.5 to 2 hours a day. I have been speed walking 5 to 6 miles 3 times a week for 7 years now with no results. Please what can I do deffrent help.

Response from Dr. Henry

A full clinical, nutrition, hormone assessment is recommended. You may be sensitive to the fat effects of your HIV regimen if not other contributing causes found. Unclear whether switch to an alternative regimen (such as raltegravir or efavirenz) would help but I would consider a trial of a different regimen (often need > 6 months to observe for changes) if drugs seems to be contributing.
