"After adjusting for sex, race/ethnicity, age, education, poverty, and body mass index, the prevalence of DM among HIV-infected adults receiving medical care was 1.4 times that of adults in the general U.S. population"
"Compared to the general U.S. population aged 20-44 years, same-aged HIV-infected adults are almost three times as likely to have DM"
"DM may be present at an earlier age in the context of HIV-infection and in the absence of traditional risk factors"
