Almost a third of transgender women in the USA test positive for HIV (CDC). This study aimed to show the CVD profile of transgender women. Data was derived from the Partners Healthcare System (PHS) in Boston. The study found that transgender women with HIV showed a significantly increased prevalence of anemia, as well as lower hemoglobin levels when compared to men with HIV. Both groups had a mean age of 51. There was no difference for traditional CVD risk factors such as prevalence of hyperlipidemia or hypertension.
