HIV+T2D+ tended to have higher trunk fat mass (17.2 kg (13.5-20.8)) compared to HIV+T2D- (12.4 kg (8.9 - 15.9), p=0.057) and HIV-T2D- (13.0 kg (11.5-14.6), p=0.020, but not compared to HIV-T2D+ (18.6 (16.2-21.0), p=0.495) (Fig. 2)."
"IL- 6 was elevated in HIV+T2D+ compared to HIV+T2D- and HIV-T2D- but not when compared to HIV-T2D+ (Fig. 3)."
