Weight Gain in PLWH: An Increasing Concern

In this issue:

Obesity among people living with HIV is on the rise. What’s causing it? Is it a side effect of ART? From which regimens? What do we know and what can clinicians do about it?

Join Dr. Todd Brown, Professor of Medicine and Epidemiology at Johns Hopkins University as we explore those and other questions about weight gain in people living with HIV in this issue of eHIV Review.

Learning objectives:

  • Identify the ART medications that have been implicated in weight gain.
  • Discuss the controversy over whether weight gain that has been associated with ART agents is caused by them.
