With regards to the anecdotal reports concerning vieny legs, July 2, and the medication, avandia, what were they? Could you share with us what some people have said?
Response from Dr. Bartlett
Michael, there are biological reasons to hope that this class of drugs may reverse lipoatrophy, or the loss of fat in the periphery. I have heard anecdotes from a few patients that they may have helped. However, I would not recommend prescribing this treatment until more careful studies have been completed. These drugs may also carry a risk which needs to be carefully studied.
