Li Vecchi V et al. – Among the foods rich in calcium, yogurt was a protective predictor of BMD in HIV–subjects. HIV/HCV co–infection, nadir CD4 + T–cell count < 200 cells/muL and drug addiction were independent predictors of severe BMD. Promoting behavioral changes in food intake and lifestyle, aimed at the primary prevention of bone disease in the chronically–infected subjects seems to be essential for implementing medical intervention in these cases.
