In addition, nutritional abnormalities are involved in muscle dysfunction, which in turn leads to exercise limitation, loss of quality of life and increased mortality.

However, the presence/absence of malnutrition is a factor that has not been included in the majority of clinical guidelines. The role that nutritional compromise plays, at present, in the morbidity and mortality of HIV-infected patients is a matter of controversy.

The present article focuses on data published from the Nutrition for Healthy Living (NFHL) cohort, describing weight loss and wasting in HIV disease during the HAART by: Nutritional disease, any of the nutrient-related diseases and conditions that cause illness in may include deficiencies or excesses in the diet, obesity and eating disorders, and chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease, hypertension, cancer, and diabetes ional diseases also include developmental abnormalities that can be prevented.

Infectious diseases are caused by pathogenic microorganisms, notably bacteria, viruses, parasites, and fungi. These diseases can be spread, directly or indirectly, from one person to.
