Hello Theresa E Munford,

Welcome to the EmpowHER community. Thank you for reaching out to us for help.

I can appreciate the challenges that you are facing.

Have you spoken with your physician about suggestions? That would be a good person to start with. Your physician knows the medications that you have been prescribed and your most recent viral load level.

Regarding weight loss, are you dealing with nausea and vomiting? Has a special diet or specific daily caloric intake been suggested? Has a nutritional supplement like Ensure or Boost been suggested?
