Preview

Lipodystrophy associated with human immunodeficiency virus infection causes abdominal fat gain, peripheral subcutaneous fat atrophy, insulin resistance, low levels of high-density lipoprotein cholesterol, and hypertriglyceridemia. An exercise program combined with a moderate-fat, low-glycemic-index, high-fiber diet can reverse several aspects of lipodystrophy, and, until specific treatment is available, should be considered for treatment of lipodystrophy.
