Heart diseases increases for HIV patients


HIV patients are at a significantly higher risk of suffering from heart and blood vessel diseases as compared to those without the infection. The researchers indicated that the heart disease risk among HIV patients occurs due to interactions between traditional risk factors such as diet, lifestyle and tobacco us and HIV-specific risk factors, such as a chronically activated immune system and inflammation characteristic of chronic HIV. 



Considerable gaps exist in our knowledge about HIV-associated diseases of the heart and blood vessels, in part because HIV's transition from a fatal disease to a chronic condition is relatively recent, so long-term data on heart disease risks are limited. The another risk factor is the aging population of HIV patients as 75 per cent of HIV patients are over 45 years of age. Aging with HIV differs greatly from the aging issues facing the general population.
