Are there any supplements available to reduce visceral fat accumulation in the gut?  Does oral Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) actually work; if so, how many MGs a day does one take?  What about intense aerobic exercise?  Any info is greatly appreciated.

Hi Wesley,
I tried that some years ago, along with many other supplements.
Sorry to tell you it doesn't work , don't waste your money!
Also if you decide to try supplements anyway, be sure your doc knows.
Many can interact with your meds. Some vitamins are important and will usually show
Up on your labs if you are deficient ,like B12. , vitamin D .... Ect.

Everyone is different, so I can't tell you aerobics won't help.
I exercised and watched everything I put in my mouth, I lost
Weight but not where I wanted to. If you're young it may be to your advantage,
I don't know.

I wish I had a better answer for you, it's just a mystery,Some get it some don't.
There are different theories, some say from the meds , the virus or both.
I know from experience it's frustrating, hang in there.
There is egrifta, and some have had success with it.I have no experience with it.
Keep us posted and Be Well, Wade
