sarcopenia, HIV, comorbidity.


The current trend of HIV-infection, the increase in the proportion of people living with HIV in older age groups, the increase in life expectancy of patients through the introduction of antiretroviral therapy, the acceleration of involutionary processes by an average of 10 years due to HIV/AIDS, determine the formation of the types of pathology characteristic of the elderly, including the musculoskeletal system. In the structure of the latter, sarkopenia becomes particularly relevant - a decrease in its mass, strength and function, in the stage of AIDS reaching 100% prevalence.
