Abstract

The purpose of this study was to determine whether blood lipid and lipoprotein concentrations varied in 5 men with advanced HIV-1 infection after 12 months of aerobic exercise training. Prior to exercise, the mean baseline cholesterol and high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) serum concentration were each lower, and mean baseline triglyceride concentration was higher compared to a healthy population norm. Consistent exercise training for 12 months failed to significantly (p > .05) alter cholesterol or HDL-C. Triglyceride concentration was significantly (p < .05) elevated above baseline (63 mg/dL) regardless of exercise compliance. The results suggest that long-term exercise training cannot correct lipid profile abnormality, particularly hypertriglyceridemia, common to individuals with advanced HIV-1 infection.
