Weight gain and incident diabetes among HIV-infected veterans initiating antiretroviral therapy compared with uninfected individuals.
The authors used data from the Veterans Aging Cohort Study to determine whether weight gain after antiretroviral therapy has a similar association with incident type 2 diabetes mellitus as weight gained among HIV-uninfected individuals. They found that weight gained during the first year after antiretroviral therapy initiation is associated with greater risk of diabetes mellitus than that among uninfected individuals.
