A propensity-score matched cohort study investigating premature age in people living with HIV
  AIDS 2022 July 29- Aug 1 Montreal
In a well-controlled, matched sample of people with and without HIV, we found that CVD and hypertension occur earlier in PLWH, indicating premature aging.
See Figure 1 to see the frequency distribution of CVD, hypertension, diabetes & chronic kidney disease, quite striking: much higher rates of chronic kidney disease for PLWH; figure 1 shows higher diabetes rates fr PLWH in certain age groups 40-49 & 60-69, but there was a study at CROI & published finding older women with HIV I think over 60 had much higher rates than similar HIV-negative women.

As the life expectancy of PLWH continues to increase, it should be a priority of future research to ascertain how to alleviate premature aging in PLWH to ensure optimal wellbeing and quality of life for aging PLWH.
