Merge with body fat redistribution syndrome[edit]

The article body fat redistribution syndrome appears to be about the same topic as HIV-associated lipodystrophy. A search for "body fat redistribution syndrome" leads to pages about lipodystrophy and even a page (Radiopaedia) showing the two to be synonyms. --Gccwang (talk) 21:41, 14 September 2014 (UTC)

Lipodystrophy and HIV related lipodystrophy not the same[edit]

It doesn't seem to be the same disease. The HIV related one are caused by the extensive use of antiretroviral therapy whereas lipodystrophy can happen in people without HIV infection. Therefore I think there should be maintained two different pages, maybe with a reference in both to each other. Diogo sfreitas (talk) 23:54, 7 November 2014 (UTC)
