Belly Fat in People With HIV

In Brief:

Quote
Weight gain is a growing concern for people living with HIV and their health care providers. HIV-positive people have not been spared from the rising prevalence of overweight and obesity among the general population in the United States and worldwide.

Numerous studies have found that people who start or switch to a new regimen can gain weight, especially if it includes an integrase inhibitor. Increasing weight may also be attributable to a return to health after starting treatment or normal changes that occur with age. People with HIV are often urged to manage their weight, but this is easier said than done. In general, changing antiretrovirals in an effort to lose weight does not seem to have much effect.

Eat a healthy diet, exercise more and get enough sleep. The new study suggests that such efforts are far from futile.

The PROSPER-HIV trial (NCT03790501) is a multisite observational study of the impact of physical activity and diet on long-term outcomes among people with HIV. This analysis included 416 people on antiretroviral therapy.

The study participants used an ActiGraph accelerometer worn on the hip for seven to 10 days to record their physical activity, and their waist and hip circumference were measured.

During this period, they took an average of 4,905 steps per day, with a range of 3,233 to 7,140 steps. More than half (55%) reached the federal government’s fitness goal of at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity physical activity or 75 minutes of vigorous exercise per week.

After controlling for age, sex, employment status and integrase inhibitor use, the number of steps taken per day was associated with reduced abdominal fat. Waist circumference was about 1 centimeter less for every additional 1,000 steps per day. Conversely, more daily sedentary time was associated with a larger waist circumference.

You were leaning in to speak to me
Acting like a mover shaker
Dancing to Madonna then you kissed me
And I think about it all the time
