hyperlipidemia with HIV
Jul 10, 2012
if the patient is hyperlipidemic & detected as HIV +VE THEN WHAT REGIMEN SHOULD BE PREFFERED?
Response from Dr. Henry
Treatment for high lipids in the setting of HIV infection depends on many individual factors including: which specific lipids are increased and to what degree, influence of HIV drugs on lipid levels (sometimes can switch HIV meds around to perhaps decrease certain levels of lipids), diet and exercise often very important, fish oil can help some, calculation of risk for heart disease can help prioritize decision to treat high lipid levels, and family history.
