Studies have found that weight gain is common after people with HIV begin an antiretroviral in this class.
Weight gain speeds up after switching to an integrase inhibitor from a non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor.
“I’m putting my fat rolls and fine lines on full display as a commitment to value myself,” says Kelly Gluckman of Through Positive Eyes.
Attendees will hear news about the second probable HIV cure, long-acting injectable meds and COVID-19.
Newer drug classes are tied to a higher risk of weight gain, which is more likely to occur among Black women in particular.
Researchers at George Washington University take a look.
Future research should examine how particular combinations of antiretrovirals contribute to weight gain, according to one expert.
The newer tenofovir formulation can raise cholesterol and triglyceride levels, but these changes are reversible.
However, Tivicay plus Descovy was associated with greater weight gain, especially among women.
More high-quality evidence is needed to determine how this class of HIV medications may affect weight gain.
Gilead Sciences has released multiple combo tablets that contain the updated tenofovir, which is linked to improved bone and kidney makers.
Truvada appeared to temporarily prevent some weight gain and reduce cholesterol slightly in a recent study.
