Serostim, HIV and Extreme Loss of Body Fat (Editor's Pick)
I have been HIV positive since 1990, in the last couple years I have noticed my face has sunken in, my stomach is now very large and my arms legs are very skinny, I had scupltra/Radiesse injected this past May but with very little success, my current number are CD4 960 and undetectable viral load, Reyataz/Truvada/Norvir are my current regiment. I can hardly look in the mirror anymore and the visceral fat is getting to where I can't breath. any help would be appreciated, I also take serostim injections daily.
I am so sorry that you are going through this.
Serostim can cause your symptoms of being out of breath. The dose the company recommends is too high for most people (6 mg/day). Serostim can burn visceral fat but can also worsen lipoatrophy.
