HIV-Age

Moderate to high-intensity aerobic exercise increases cardiorespiratory fitness (VO2peak) in younger adults with HIV. There are few studies that show any benefit from varying types of exercise in older adults with HIV. In a pilot study using 22 older men with HIV, half were randomly assigned to one of two groups – moderate-intensity aerobic exercise (Mod-AEX) or high-intensity aerobic exercise (High-AEX). In the High-AEX group, exercise consisted of using a motorized treadmill with occasional substitution using an elliptical machine as needed for joint pain.

Patients’ perceive their ART as crucial for their living. Is their attitude similar for those medications they take for comorbid conditions? To assess this, a sample of 150 patients from the Swiss HIV Cohort Study (SHCS) was assessed. Adherence for ART, and for treatments of comorbid conditions, was defined as not missing any dose or missing one dose of the treatment in the past 4 weeks. The final sample has a mean age of 54 with 70% being male. Of these, 83% were adherent to ART and 71% were adherent to their co-treatments (P=0.0001).
