Hi Pozzie, thanks for creating this blog.

Hi Pozzie.

Thanks for creating this blog.

I got diagnosed with HIV last July 2013. I have TB and I am still taking anti TB drugs. My concern is that I am losing a lot of weight. I am not embarrassed to leave the house because of this. Is there a way for me to gain it back?



Thank you for your email. Thank you for the kind words about the blog.

Since you have a virus and an active bacteria being treated, your metabolism is still high. What you need to do is to keep up with the metabolism and restimulate your appetite. Have a gradual exercise program as tolerable to stimulate your appetite and try to eat as frequent as possible to gain your weight back. 

I hope I was able to answer your concerns. Feel free to email me again if you have other questions.

Stay healthy,

NO PLHIV is alone with his or her struggle with HIV!"
