I have recently noticed a small amount of fat in the nipple area (along with small fibrous lumps which have been checked out and are just that), very odd on me cause I am in very good shape with a very low body fat.
(Never on steroids and my testosterone alway is in the med to high normal range) That being said I am on many things that are said to cause this, Sustiva (hiv med) propecia (hair loss med) xanax, antidepressant, sleeping pills.
I am wondering if anyone on here has had experiance with HIV med related gynecomastia and what their doctor did. I am not sure it causes the fat build up by the same means that low testosterone or high estrogen or steriod use would.
I did have my hormones checked and will soon know the results but I suspect it will likely be the medicines I am on as so many of them have potential to cause this. Sustiva and propecia are at the top of the list.
Also anecdotally does anyone think my use of Whey Protien (80 grams a day) or using Creatine might be a part of the problem. I have been on the above meds for years and years and only just now having this problem. The only thing thats really changed in the last year is my consumption of Whey and Creatine… although I realize its unlikely…
