Long-Term Treated HIV No Defense Against Diabetes Risk

It has long been thought that the heightened risk of diabetes among people living with HIV was mostly due to early-generation antiretroviral drugs that raised glucose levels. But a longitudinal Australian study published in the Feb. 20, 2018, issue of AIDS found that, even in the modern treatment era, HIV-positive men who have sex with men (MSM) developed diabetes at an extremely high rate.

People of African descent may mistakenly get the all-clear from a widely used type 2 diabetes test called HbA1c, according to an international study. The findings have important implications as they suggest that using this test as the sole means to diagnose diabetes would do harm, said University of the Witwatersrand endocrinologist Alisha Wade.

HCV eradication in HIV coinfected patients linked to reduced diabetes, chronic renal failure

Eradication of hepatitis C virus infection among patients coinfected with HIV was associated with reductions in diabetes and chronic renal failure in addition to reduced mortality, HIV progression and liver-related events, according to the results of a Spanish cohort study. These findings led investigators to conclude that HIV coinfected patients should receive HCV therapy regardless of their fibrosis stage.

Diabetes drug may reduce heart attack risk in HIV patients

A diabetes drug may have benefits beyond lower blood sugar in patients with HIV. New research from Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis suggests the drug may prevent cardiovascular problems because it works to reduce inflammation that is linked to heart disease and stroke in these patients. The drug both improved metabolism and reduced inflammation in HIV-positive adults on antiretroviral therapy.

The report warns against the brewing storm of diabetes and tuberculosis (TB) that is no longer confined to the teacup.

Health Experts: Perfect Storm of Diabetes and Tuberculosis Must Be Headed Off

The report, The Looming Co-epidemic of TB Diabetes: A Call to Action (1), launched on the opening day of the 45th Union World Conference on Lung Health currently taking place in Barcelona, Spain October 28 - November 1, synthesizes evidence from the medical and scientific literature, promotes an international policy framework for action, and lays out a new research agenda to fill knowledge gaps. The report challenges the conventional approach to health policymaking, which has historically addressed infectious diseases and noncommunicable (or “chronic”) diseases independently.

Launched today, the Community Consensus Statement is a basic set of principles aimed at making sure that happens.

The Community Consensus Statement is a joint initiative of AVAC, EATG, MSMGF, GNP+, HIV i-Base, the International HIV/AIDS Alliance, ITPC and NAM/aidsmap
