Fat redistribution, defined by both increased abdominal visceral fat and/or decreased abdominal, extremity, and facial subcutaneous fat, is increasingly recognized among human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-infected patients treated with combination antiretroviral therapy. Fat redistribution in this population is associated with insulin resistance and dyslipidemia and is often referred to as the HIV lipodystrophy syndrome (LIPO). Fatty acids are known to modulate insulin resistance in other… CONTINUE READING
