Do People Living With HIV Age Prematurely?
People living with HIV appear to develop cardiovascular disease (CVD) and hypertension earlier than those without HIV, and they seem to be increasingly likely to develop chronic kidney disease (CKD), according to a new study. On average, CVD and hypertension occurred about 2 years earlier in people living with HIV. And from about age 40 on, CKD burden increased more quickly, the researchers report.
@srabani The earlier development of CVD and hypertension in people living with HIV than in those without HIV indicates premature aging, whereas the increased burden of CKD indicates accelerated aging
