  [from Jules Levin, NATAP - 60% frailty among 50-59 year old HIV+....39% pre-frail among 40-49 years old HIV+....NNRTI-based initial ART regimens were associated with frailty / Integrase inhibitors improve walking/gait....D4T/DDI use [any prior use] was associated with slower gait while INSTI use was protective.....Physical activity & some alcohol use were protective for both frailty & 4-m walk pace....Obesity & smoking were associated with greater frailty....Neurocognitive impairment & renal disease were associated with greater odds of frailty & slow 4-m walk pace.]
