I’ve been losing weight, will I gain it back?
I’ve been losing weight for some time. I’ve just found out that I’m positive. Will I remain my lost weight once I start medication?
Thanks for getting in touch.
Weight loss is common in people who are positive, especially if they have a low CD4 count. Once someone starts treatment, their weight should gradually return to normal, so what it was like before there was a lot of weight loss. So yes, starting meds will help.
