Hello, I also have the frustrating problem of lypodystrophy belly fat, over the years I've gotten so many pregnant, when is your baby due and it's a boy comments that it's hard to block out because it's clearly what it looks like to me also. I too tried egrifta fo about 10 months and it seemed to help but now insurance won't pay for it anymore. I want to get a tummy tuck and hopefully that will solve a huge part of my problem. I just had a consultation and dr is gonna to try to help

Hello, and thank YOU! So glad to Google something and actually get feedback that is relevant to me. Been struggling with lipodystrophy for 17 years. Diagnosed in 91, med choices were slim to none. My body changed overnight it seemed, the uphill battle began. I've always been grateful for my long happy life. But on the inside at the age of 47 I'm just sick and tired of feeling uncomfortable and self-conscious. It really brings me down and impacts my life everyday. I want it all gone!

This is an odd journey we have with our disease. Like you body image issues were affecting me psychological. I think i was in denial about my lipodystrophy side effects. I have started egrifta fir three months or so, with stringent diet and excercise routine it has helped but is no quick fix and egrifta is a dailyh lifelong treatment at this stage of the game. I too think about gettingg lipo because it may really help my psyche.
