 In many HIV-infected individuals with prior weight loss, the failure to regain weight and lean tissue is at least in part the consequence of inadequate protein intake or ingestion of a poor-quality protein rather than total caloric intake. Dietary sources of protein are presumably inadequate to meet the high metabolic needs caused by HIV infection. To achieve a target protein intake in the range (1.5 to 2.0 g/kg/day) demonstrated in other catabolic diseases necessary to achieve positive nitrogen balance and to generate substantial anabolic effects.

A high-quality protein food supplement may help HIV-positive patients maintain, and possibly gain, muscle mass. Many HIV-positive patients lose weight that they are then unable to regain. This may be because patients are not eating enough protein or are not eating the right kinds of protein. The protein eaten in foods (such as meat, eggs, or beans) may not be able to make up for the amount of protein lost due to HIV infection.

Nitrogen Balance

By Sandco Staff

The sensitivity of Nitrogen balance to changes in energy intake has been demonstrated in numerous studies. It is well known that when diet provides adequate amounts of protein the addition of energy-yielding nutrients (either carbohydrate or fat) results in a linear improvement in N balance in humans and animals (Munro, 1951, 1964, 1978; Inoue et al. 1973; Garza et al. 1976; Reeds et al. 1981). However, the underlying biochemical mechanism whereby energy intake above requirements affects N metabolism in long-term studies remains obscure.
