|Hiv causes Lipoatrophy ..not meds?
Oct 5, 2001
Are there any studies...supporting the theory that Hiv in of itself...may be the cause of Lipoatrophy???
Response from Dr. Bartlett
You have raised a very important point regarding lipodystrophy, that is, it occurred even before antiretroviral therapy was introduced. There are numerous descriptions of peripherl fat loss and centripedal fat accumulation from the early HIV epidemic. Therefore not all of the changes can be attributed to drugs.
Used to be a patient of yours ,I need your help.
