Long term HIV and diabetres
Mar 12, 2014
Hello, I am new to this site. I am a 30+ year survivor of HIV, with Tcells around 1100 and undetectable. Very stable and med compliant. I take Sustiva and Epzicom. I am 56. My Doctor has told me that I am at risk of developing Type 2 diabetes.( A "6" on a scale of 1 to 8, he said) The problem is, I am at my absolute minimum weight. I am 5'7" and 119 pounds. What can I do to keep from becoming diabetic? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thanks for your time!

Not clear if switching your HIV medications would make a clear difference. An assessment of diet and exercise patterns would be the recommended first step. KH
