    I'm gonna say what most everyone else will tell you. Consult your physician. Very few people on here are qualified to give out medical advice. Although if I'm not mistaken HRT(hormone replacement therapy) is very common alongside HIV treatment to prevent muscle wasting.

    Talk to your dr. Tudca will help with liver but you can probably get an udca prescription too. Dr> forum members when it comes to your condition. Best of luck.

    Yea, there's plenty of recommendations we could make, but as far as making those with your current maladies, we are definitely not qualified for that. Please discuss anything you might take with your physican before you do.

    id take the main bulking supps you see on here and ask your doc. (anabeta, ArA to name a couple). Other than that, just eat your butt off.

    Antiretroviral therapy has a lot of drug interactions. Absolutely do not self medicate without consulting your doctor...your life may very well depend on it

    I would read studies and get a list of things you want to try and then go to your doctor to see if they are okay with your current meds.

    Typically anavar and hgh are prescribed by physicians for pts with HIV and muscle wasting.

    Well HIV users typically experience muscle wasting secondary to opportunistic/chronic infection, or they experience lipodystrophy from a combination of illness + meds. OP has only had HIV for a few months and probably hasn't manifested any of these issues. It seems he just wants to "get fit"
