steroidogenesis inhibitors

Aug 19, 2003

do people with hiv infection usually have high cortisol levels or low cortisol levels?

what is your opinion of steroidogenesis inhibitors?

Response from Dr. Boyle

Cortisol levels remain realtively normal in most patients with HIV, although some do develop low cortisol levels, especially with advanced HIV diseasa/AIDS. I doubt that the inhibitors you mention have a role in treating HIV-infected patients, absent their having a very specific condition that requires their use.
