Patients with HIV treated with highly active antiretroviral therapy susceptible to metabolic syndrome

May 27, 2016

ORLANDO, Fla. — Among people with HIV, metabolic syndrome is more prevalent among those exposed to highly active antiretroviral therapy compared with those who are naïve to the therapy, according to a presentation here.

“Advanced age and increased BMI are independent determinants of [metabolic syndrome] in [highly active antiretroviral therapy]-treated patients,” Fakhraddeen Muhammad, MBBS, FWACP, of Aminu Kano Teaching Hospital in Kano, Nigeria, and colleagues wrote. “Lifestyle measures and regular monitoring or anthropometric indices of HIV patients will help to reduce the metabolic problems associated with drug treatment.”
