weight loss pre art
Weight loss pre-ART
  • Death associated with weight less than 66% of ideal body weight
  • Death associated with lean body mass falling below 54%
  • Independent risk factor for death in HIV
  • Weight loss also associated with increased risk for hospitalization, decreased quality of life
  • Increased progression of HIV
  • As little as 5% weight loss was associated with mortality and increased risk of opportunistic infection

    • Treatment of HIV
    • Treatment of OIs (TB)
    • Control of symptoms
