What can be done about lipodystrophy?

What can be done

  • It can be prevented, especially lipoatrophy, choosing one of antiretroviral combinations that have a lower relation to its development.
  • If detected quickly, it can be partially reversed, and especially contained. There are measurement techniques which can detect body fat gain or loss in early phases.
  • The results of regular blood tests also inform about the changes in lipid and glucose before they become a problem.
  • The loss of fat in the face can be fixed, like the accumulation in some cases.
