Bruce is joined by Dr. Daniel Lee, who discuss HIV-associated weight changes – both gaining and losing weight. First, they examine weight gain in those with HIV and how it can accelerate aging as well as contribute to other diseases, such as hypertension and diabetes. They also discuss losing weight with HIV, although HIV-related weight loss is not as common today as it was in the early days of the HIV epidemic. They emphasize the importance of a healthy diet and maintaining physical activity for people with HIV, especially for those who reduced their activity levels because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
