from Jules: I think insulin resistance & diabetes contribute to frailty, they contribute overall to metabolic abnormalities which all contribute to frailty. the question for me is why its taken our researchers 25 years to report these types of findings; at CROI 2016 there were several presentations on this - HIV in Adipose Tissue, which i just reported, and the oral plenary type review by Suzanne Crowe, also i just distributed.
