Researchers have called for revised treatment guidelines to address the higher risk of fracture in the HIV population.
Rates of HIV acquisition were very low among people taking Descovy or Truvada, but Descovy had less effect on kidneys and bones.
Investigators conducted a review of 20 studies covering 55 health outcomes, looking for those associated with HIV.

The science behind Truvada as pre-exposure prophylaxis reveals an awesome tool that is apparently already helping shrink U.S. HIV rates.
Although more research on antiretroviral linked bone loss is needed, the overall health benefits of early treatment outweigh such a risk.
For people living with HIV, exposure to hepatitis C virus (HCV) is linked to a higher risk of kidney disease and bone disorders.
