Limited data have been published about HIV infections and response to antiretroviral therapy in the Native American population. We reviewed baseline characteristics of 112 Native American patients to determine if there were any shared characteristics that would dictate the best treatment for this population. Metabolic diseases and psychiatric disorders were common findings among our patients. Native American patients should be monitored and screened as appropriate for comorbid conditions, and these disease states should be considered when choosing an antiretroviral regimen.
