hiv and weight

Many of us living with HIV experience both weight gain or weight loss at various times in our lives. Like anyone else, our weight will change over our lifetime, and there are a number of factors that influence weight gain or loss when taking HIV antiretroviral medications (ARTs).

Our Factsheet: HIV & Weight unpacks the facts and factors that impact or influence weight gain or loss for people living with HIV, the relationship between weight and HIV, as well as the complex question how HIV ARTs might affect body weight. We offer some strategies and solutions to explore with your clinicans along with some discussion points and actions to take regarding either your weight gain or loss.
