The Truvada Disaster: " A research study was recently presented at an international conference on HIV and AIDS. In this study, 200 men were given Truvada for PrEP and followed for about a year. During this time, they had their drug levels monitored closely. The individuals also had access to a complete suite of HIV prevention services and underwent regular DXA (dual x-ray absorption) scans to measure their bone mineral density. The results of the study proved interesting for individuals who had therapeutic levels of Truvada. At six months into the study, the bone mineral density of the hips had fallen by 0.5% on average. At about one year into the study, the hip bone mineral density had dropped by an average of 1.0%. In comparison, those who did not have therapeutic levels of Truvada did not see any drop in the bone mineral density of their hips. These results show that individuals who take Truvada are prone to having a reduction in their hip bone mineral density."

"Fortunately, the research on Truvada has also shown that this reduction in hip bone mineral density is also reversible. When individuals stop taking Truvada, their bone mineral density typically returns to pre-treatment levels. This reduces the risk of someone suffering a hip fracture. Furthermore, there are many treatment options for HIV and AIDS. Many of these alternatives do not have an impact on bone mineral density and should be discussed with a physician."
