Bloated feeling
Mar 14, 2011

A response to your response to my question about bloating. I am currently in a undetectable hiv status and the last bloodwork I had showed Tcells at 409.....had another set of labs on 3/8/11 no results yet.....I take Atripla and other than the slight dizziness it causes no other side effects to speak of....otherwise no other health concerns...

Response from Dr. Henry

Bloating is a common complaint in the general population and seems more frequent in HIV+ persons. Bloating can be due to one your your medications (such as tenofovir)and sometimes fat accumulation in abdomen. H pylori infection, lactose intolerance, gluten sensitivity, gall bladder dysfunction, other food sensitivities, irritably bowel syndrome, and many other non-HIV conditions can cause bloating as well so a good general heath evaluation is recommended.

thank you Dr. Henry!!
