Author information

Service of Infectious Diseases, Instiuto de Salud Carlos III, Madrid, Spain.


Changes in cholesterol and triglyceride levels after prescribing a lipid-lowering diet were assessed in 230 HIV-infected patients with dyslipemia associated with antiretroviral therapy. Lipid levels decreased significantly in subjects having good diet compliance. The reduction in triglyceride levels was greater than in cholesterol levels. Patients on protease inhibitor-containing regimens experienced a slightly greater decline in lipid levels compared with the rest.
