It is unusual for a patient doing well on HIV meds to significantly lose muscle mass. I recommend a nutrition/endocrine assessment. Most current HIV meds do not result in muscle loss-may seem some fat loss. I have little confidence that MANCORE by itself will result in sustained clinically significant increase in muscle mass. If you have low testosterone levels then hormone replacement with exercise and protein supplements can be beneficial in some patients. KH
