Same Answer Over and Over Again
May 30, 2012

Aren't you f'ing tired of saying the same thing over and over and over and over again about lipodystrophy, it's causes, and poor prognosis? I really can't believe that no one can figure it out and yes I am pissed off and have been for the last 5 or so years. It's absolutely ridiculous that all of these young people who think they are not going to get these symptoms becus they are on newer meds. They will becus you yourself are saying that it's not only the meds.... Stop offering false hope to these people and show them the real face of HIV and lipodystropy. A cure needs to be found.

Response from Dr. Henry

Thanks for sharing your frustration about the state of treatment for lipodystrophy. If answers tend to repeat themselves as you point out that reflects little practical new information for patients with severe lipodystrophy. The best management is avoidance in the first place (using most fat friendly regimen possible) while management for advanced cases is generally unsatisfactory. KH
