Conditions associated with HIV and ART

People living with HIV have been shown to be at increased risk of metabolic complications such asheart disease, diabetes, lipodystrophy and osteoporosis. Certain antiretroviral treatments (ARTs) have been linked to these changes. It is still unclear as to the exact cause of these conditions and the relationship between antiretrovirals and the HIV virus itself. Consuming a healthy, balanced diet is one way in which you can help yourself in managing these conditions.
