Exercise Today!

Our ARV's can have a lot of side effects. We can have high cholesterol levels in our blood, heart issues, depression, lipodystrophy, etc. However, these can all be halted if we start doing exercises from the very first time that we start taking our medicines. Dr. Ditangco said that some patients come back to her with signs of lipodystrophy and she said it would be harder to reverse these effects with exercise so it is really best to start working out when we don't see anything at all yet. Well, no matter what exercise is a good immune system booster which in effect will show in our CD4 counts and our total well being. It is also a good way to combat depression.
