We report that during a 4-year follow-up period in the MACS, 24 (10%) of 229 HIV-infected subjects receiving HAART developed DM compared with 10 (3%) of 361 HIV-seronegative men. After adjustment for BMI and age, this difference represents a greater than 4-fold increase in the risk of incident DM among HIV-infected subjects receiving HAART.
Conclusion: The incidence of DM in HIV-infected men with HAART exposure was greater than 4 times that of HIV-seronegative men, representing a risk that is higher than previous estimates.
