A detectable viral load during antiretroviral therapy raises the risk of metabolic syndrome, a cluster of conditions that boost the risk of heart disease. (1) This finding from a study of 1324 antiretroviral-treated people in Italy determined that a higher viral load made metabolic syndrome more likely regardless of what other risk factors people had for metabolic syndrome. Results of this study are important because the conditions that make up metabolic syndrome- are common in people with HIV infection. But research so far has produced conflicting results on how often metabolic syndrome affects HIV-infected people (3-5) and on factors that raise the risk of these conditions in people with HIV. Clinicians in northern Italy planned this study to further the understanding of metabolic syndrome in people with HIV.
