Risk of heart failure and stroke increases with HIV infection

04th July 2019

The researchers have warned the people living with HIV infection about higher risk of developing cardiovascular diseases (CVD) like heart failure and stroke.

In the study, the information was analyzed from a large health insurance database and results were published in American Heart Association Journal. Analysis was done on 19,798 people living with HIV and 59,302 age- and sex-matched non-infected individuals. They were observed for an average of 20 months.

The researchers found out that the HIV infected people had 3.2 times and 2.7 higher risks of heart failure and stroke, respectively, in comparison to the non-infected people.

The study also revealed that the association of HIV infection with cardiovascular disease was much stronger in people younger than 50 years of age and those who have no prior history of CVD.

However, there was no increased risk of peripheral artery disease found in HIV infected people.
