Diabetes, Diet and Microbial Translocation
This project will examine the role of food insecurity and gut microbial translocation on diabetes in HIV-infected women. The aim is to evaluate the impact of microbial translocation on insulin resistance in HIV-infected adults on highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART). It also aims to evaluate whether increased food insecurity is independently associated with elevated serum markers of microbial translocation (IFABP) and immune activation in HIV-infected adults on HAART.
