Avatar f tn Good morning Doc, I received unprotected oral sex last September from a hooker in Thailand. I got tested at the 3 month mark and the 5 month mark with an HIV Combo. The thing is, now,6 months post exposure, I am starting to see signs of Lipodystrophy. First I lost a lot of weight and then I gained it back and then some. Problem is I only gained it back in my belly and chest area. My forearms are becoming bony, very thin, as well as my thighs. My neck area seems to have thinned as well.
Avatar m tn did you have a risk that you would like to ask about?
Avatar m tn A few of the summaries are useful (and readable) for giving brief descriptions of lipodystrophy many relate aquired lipodystrophy to HIV meds. A search of lipodystrophy pluc HCV turns up nothing. You many already have done this search. Clearly lipodytrophy, from whatever cause, is a serious problem, involving much more than potbellies and high triglycerides. I am interested in your search because my triglycerides have become abnormally high since the end of tx a year ago.
Avatar n tn I had 2 encounters on separate occasions with the guy who i think is on HIV medications, because i realised later that he had some signs of lipodystrophy. He dsaid to me wasnt HIV positive,so im not sure of his HIV status. We only did deep kissing and mutual masturbation,I touched his *** hole a couple of times with my finger and sucked his nipple. Couldnt see any blood or taste blood. He came on my hand on both occasions. I dont think i had any obvious cuts or open wounds.
Avatar m tn So do your best to mellow out and stop worrying about this. For sure stop searching the web for things like HIV lipodystrophy! Oh, and don't forget your seatbelt…..
Avatar m tn My cheeks seem to look the same as they did before. I’ve read about HIV-associated lipodystrophy, and while I do not have a buffalo hump between my shoulder blades or a taut belly from visceral fat, I don’t know if this could indeed be lipoatrophy. That said, please note that I stand at 6’ tall and weigh 149lbs (as per the last time I measured my weight which was in February 2019), so I’ve always been relatively skinny, although these changes seem to be rather sudden and are quite noticeable.

Also as soon as he came i washed my hand with hot water and soap.
Avatar m tn i have weight loss just a bit but on that year i was a soccer player but only a bit sometimes diarrhea one and only time mouth sore fever and then something is bothering me when i hear hiv on news, i was feeling anxious very anxious like i cant sleep! so i got tested on year 2016 month of august and it was negative the test i get is a rapid test kit now on 2017 i am 89 kilos ! i am frequently coughing but no chest pain.
Avatar n tn you don't have HIV, as evidenced by a negative test at 15 weeks, and 2. lipodystrophy isn't associated with HIV, but with the meds used to treat HIV. I also wonder if anyone actually diagnosed you with lipodystrophy. Sometimes our perception of our bodies and what's normal doesn't mesh with objective reality. As for the weight gain, some people eat more when they're anxious/depressed. Or maybe there are other medical issues--but HIV isn't one of them.
Avatar m tn 2)I’ve danced with about 30 to 40 woman in the space of time of 6 months in discos / pick up bar where people dance like ballads, and two of them looked to have lipodystrophy (thin arms, neck and cheeks) so I assume they all have HIV and are on antiretroviral drugs. Since I’ve danced with those girls, holding them and rubbing my penis on them with our clothes on, is there any transmission risk?
Avatar n tn He said that had PCP and oral leukoplakia and that is the main reason why is he diagnosed with AIDS... One more question about lipodystrophy... can someone with HIV have lipodystrophy if that person is not on medication? Thank you for your time!
Avatar f tn Not everyone that has HIV suffers from lipodystrophy. It is usually caused in people with HIV that are on certain medications, such as Zerit.
Avatar n tn I had 2 encounters on separate occasions with this guy who i think is on HIV medications, because i realised later that he had some signs of lipodystrophy. He didnt say to me he was HIV positive. We only did deep kissing and mutual masturbation,I touched his ass hole a couple of times with my finger and sucked his nipple.I couldnt see any blood or taste blood. He came on my hand on both occasions. I dont think i had any obvious cuts or open wounds.
Avatar f tn Hi guys, Can Lipodystrophy happen after 6 months of exposure? Reason Im asking is because I have gained A LOT of weight and have only put it on on my stomach and chest. My foraerms are getting really thin as well as my thighs and arms. I also notice saggy skin on my arms. Is this Lipo?
Avatar m tn I am also aware that HIV is not diagnosed on the basis of symptoms, but I was wondering whether face fat loss and redistribution of fat is caused by early HIV infection, anti-retro viral medications or long-term HIV infection that has progressed to AIDS?

Avatar n tn You do not have HIV -- and therefore cannot have lipodystrophy or any other symptoms related to HIV. What's so hard about accepting that scientific reality? MedHelp permits no more than 2 questions every 6 months on each of the professionally moderated forums (see Terms and Conditions) -- precisely to pevent domination of forums by anxiety-driven questions like yours. The reason is to prevent domination of forums w, and this is your fourth (or maybe fifth?) on this forum since last August.

Avatar m tn Am I totally free with regard to HIV??? Really freaking out about Lipodistrophy....
Avatar n tn I had 2 encounters on separate occasions with this guy who i think is on HIV medications, because i realised later that he had some signs of lipodystrophy. He still didnt say he has HIV, so im not sure if he is HIV positive. We only did deep kissing and mutual masturbation, touched his ass hole a couple of times with my finger and sucked his nipple. Couldnt see any blood or taste blood. He came on my hand on both occasions. I dont think i had any obvious cuts or open wounds.
Avatar f tn I am pretty sure from self diagnosis that i may have a wart or two but not completely sure. But i am really worried about the HIV. Can you help me in any way? I do not get tired just on the train i knock out because i wake up at 5 in the morning everyday for work. I have had diahreea a couple of times in that month period but i really think it was from food i ate because it lasted only for a day but am scared about that too....
Avatar m tn 2/ If it is not Hiv then what other pathogens which I could get infected from cunilingus causing the Hiv unique Lipodystrophy ? 3/ Please help me to advice me what I should now ? Thanks in advance.

What can I do? Are there any tests I sould get? Please help!
Avatar m tn I have a lymphnode in my right groin area from that long ago that has never disappeared..and I also have lost around 14 pounds in the last 6 months mostly in my face and legs ...and also developed quite a few eye floaters in the last 4 months that seemed to have appeared when I started to worry of the possibility of HIV..the back of my tongue also has a white coating which gives me bad breath and I don't know if this is thrush or just a bacterial build up..
Avatar m tn including increased fat around the abdomen, breasts, and back of the neck, as well as decreased fat in the face, arms, and legs), and diabetes. These side effects of HIV drug therapy are reviewed in our lessons on Lipodystrophy, Facial Lipoatrophy, and Risks To Your Heart (Hyperlipidemia). • If you have hepatitis B and HIV and plan to stop taking Combivir, your doctor might want to frequently check your liver enzymes after stopping treatment.
Avatar m tn You do not have an HIV concern and this forum is HIV specific.

Avatar m tn oh, and i do know that some drugs can cause fat to relocate- for instance, some HIV medications can cause lipodystrophy, where the subcutaneous fat basically disappears, and instead fat deposits end up inside the abdomen and at the back of the neck- which makes the patient look gaunt in the face & limbs, with a "buffalo hump" and a swollen belly.
186166 tn?1385262982 It's called Wasting/Lipodystrophy- it's the Deterioration (for lack of a better word) of your fat cells- it is mostly noticable in your face (cheeks, and under the eyes)- This can also be the result of medication, the funny thing about HIV meds are they keep the HIV at bay but the side effects can be a nightmare (I have not had any as of yet) only been on meds for about 1 year.
