M loosing weight since i started using arv's,why is this happening?

Hi there! Thank you for your question! Side effects such as weight loss are not uncommon. The most important thing is that you do not stop taking your medication. It would be best that you visit your clinic to get more help with managing your side effects.

It's a platform created for young people as well as adults that raises awareness on healthy living it teaches and educates about diseases that we live with on a daily basis but mostly importantly it supports those living with certain chronic diseases and educates those that are not how to treat the ones living with such diseases.
