Any studies on using steroids to fight Lipodystrophy
Jan 10, 2000

Are there any studies on using Steriods to fight Liphodystrophy. My doctr is uneasy about refilling my scripts without some proof that a "real" study(ies) is going somewhere she can talk to other doctors> HELP!!!

Response from Dr. Dieterich

I have found personally that anabolics like Decadurabolin and oxandrolone (Oxandrin) have been very helpful in battling lipodystrophy. We have done some preliminary studies and more are planned. Lipo is a very difficult topic and it will take a long time to figure it out. Douglas T. Dieterich, M.D.
