As per a US study, it has been revealed that HIV patients are at a greater risk of suffering from cardiovascular problem and dying from the same. Though people suffering from HIV have been living long these days, the study says that it is due to antiretroviral drug, which cannot help people for a very long time.
Professor Anthony Dart, who is the director of cardiovascular medicine at the Alfred hospital in Melbourne, was of the view that till now not many people have realized that HIV sufferers are at increased risk of dying from cardiovascular problem.
Dart said that there is a possibility that people would not have noticed it, as earlier there was no medicine and people used to die early of AIDS. He further affirmed that risk of dying from heart attack among HIV sufferers is three times more than other people.
There can be many reasons for increasing the risk of cardiovascular disease among HIV patients, like vaccine and condition itself, but there are many other contributory factors. Smoking and drinking are the two main aggravating factors of suffering from cardiac arrest.
"Cigarette smoking is much higher in HIV-positive subjects than others, obesity is more common and there's some suggestion of an increased risk from the treatment of HIV", further affirmed Dart.
