Abstract

Renal insufficiency is one of the common issues in people living with human immunodeficiency virus (PLHIV). We studied the incidence and risk factors for renal insufficiency in male PLHIV using the Korea HIV/acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) Cohort Study. Among the 830 enrolled patients, 32 (3.9%) cases of renal insufficiency occurred over 9576 patient-years of follow-up. The incidence of renal insufficiency in HIV-infected men in this study was 3.3 per 1000 patient-years. Diabetes mellitus, dyslipidemia, tenofovir or non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor exposure for >1 year, and AIDS-defining illness were risk factors for renal insufficiency.
