Although lower than African Americans, the prevalence of CKD among Latinos with HIV is high: in this study at this institution- 25% overall CKD, 29% in AAs, 23% for Latinos.
The progression of CKD among African-Americans and Latinos with HIV may be different.
Major risk factors for CKD included age >50 and hypertension
Among patients with HIV, Latinos may not have the same risk-factors for developing CKD as African-Americans.
Prospective cohort studies will be required to elucidate modifiable risk factors of CKD progression among minorities.
Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is an important complication of HIV in the era of highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART), especially among minority populations.
African Americans (AA) are disproportionally affected and have been typically studied.
We aimed to study the prevalence and risk factors of CKD among Latino HIV patients.
