5 5 HIV Nutrition Essentials Current HIV Nutrition Issues

6 6 HIV MNT Overall Goals Optimize nutrition status, immunity and quality of life Prevent nutrient deficiencies Achieve and maintain optimal body weight and composition Manage co-morbidities Maximize effectiveness of medications

7 7 Vicious Cycle of Malnutrition and HIV Poor Nutrition resulting in weight loss, muscle wasting, weakness, nutrient deficiencies Increased Nutritional needs, Reduced food intake and increased loss of nutrients Increased vulnerability to infections e.g. Enteric infections, flu, TB hence Increased HIV replication, Hastened disease progression Increased morbidity Impaired immune system Poor ability to fight HIV and other infections, Increased oxidative stress HIV Source: Fanta Project Adapted from RCQHC and FANTA

8 8 HIV Nutrition Issues Poor Immune Function Food and water safety, sanitation Optimized nutrient and fluid intake Vitamin mineral supplementation Exercise: aerobic and progressive resistance training Medication adherence Stress reduction Establishment of trusting relationships

9 9 Nutrition Issues and Treatments Common Side Effects GI distress  Diarrhea  Nausea/vomiting  Gas Anorexia Fatigue Taste alterations Mouth pain Anemia Hyperlipidemia Insulin resistance Hypertension Liver toxicity Renal impairment Obesity Lipodystrophy Peripheral neuropathy Cancer

10 10 Causes of Weight Loss 1-Inadequate Intake Oral and upper gastrointestinal Anorexia Psychosocial-economic Malabsorption Source: Mangili A et al. CID 2006:42 (15 March) p 836-42

11 11 Causes of Weight Loss 2-Altered Metabolism Uncontrolled HIV infection Metabolic demands of HAART Opportunistic infections or malignancies (AIDS-defining conditions) Hormonal deficiencies (testosterone or thyroid) Cytokine dysregulation Source: Mangili A et al. CID 2006:42 (15 March) p 836-42

12 12 Resting Energy Expenditure Grunfeld et al. AJCN 1992;55:455-60.

13 13 Impact of Viral Load on Resting Energy Expenditure

14 14 HIV Wasting Definitions CDC Nutrition for Healthy Living (Tufts) Grinspoon, Mulligan & DHHS Working Group Polsky, Kotler & Steinhart

15 15 Calories Needed and Weight Change Relation to Viral Load Not on HAART  0.92 kg body weight decrease per each HIV RNA log 10 increase  22 Kcal increase in REE per increase in per 1-log copy/ml Stable HAART  0.35 kg body weight decrease per each 100-cell/mm 3 CD4 cell decrease  81 kcal higher REE Source: Wanke et al. CID 2006:42 (15 March)

16 16 Outcomes of Weight Loss Morbidity and mortality independent of CD4 and viral load Weight loss of >5% associated with increase risk of mortality even with ART Adverse pregnancy outcomes Weight loss & wasting continue to be common problems

17 17 International Nutrition Feeding Safely and Adequately Access to nutritious food Access to safe water Malnutrition  Linked with HIV infection  Linked with poor prognosis  Linked with poor prognosis despite ART Breast feeding Access to HIV medications

66 66 Changing Practices and Attitudes Establishing the Framework for MNT Wheels of change move slowly Develop infrastructure  Standards of care, guidelines, contracts  Indicators, monitoring tools, reports MNT services: disparity in clinics  Providers, program managers, funding  Awareness, interpretation and abilities  Expectations, goal setting, reporting, access

67 67 Changing Practices and Attitudes Technical Assistance: Providers and RDs Provider meetings, calls, emails Provider and staff presentations At each year’s program monitoring  Different and evolving TA focus  Always provide materials  Ex: HRSA Nutrition Manual CD, screening & referral forms, articles, standards of care, BMI chart, nutrition & weight flow chart

68 68 Changing Practices and Attitudes Technical Assistance: RDS Dietitians in AIDS Care (DIAC)  DIAC listserve  Quarterly meetings since April 2005 Networking – long-lasting relationships Training and problem solving  Nutrition care process  When to provide/discontinue: nutritional supplements, food / meal services  Hyperlipidemia, insulin resistance, renal disease

69 69 Personal Growth Lessons Learned More medical records reviewed Monitoring tools - streamlined and tally / comments sheets Increase time spent monitoring Evaluation report of MNT programs  Establish ongoing database  Baseline knowledge of programs

70 70 Screening for Nutrition Problems Lessons Learned Newton’s laws of motion Providers’ resistance  Problems? Don’t look and you won’t find  Screening vs. referring  Defining “at risk” Make it easy to look, think, document Simple questions work

71 71 Height and Weight Measurements Lessons Learned Routine measurements needed  Height not always measured  Weight usually measured  Accuracy questionable on both Who measures? How trained? Shoes? Calibration of scales? Stadiometer? Monitoring weight  Adding/subtracting usually not done  BMI not usually done  Graphing not done

72 72 Reducing Barriers to MNT Lessons Learned Reducing broken appointments  Set appointments with client  Coordinate with primary care visit  Reminders and follow-up calls and letters Document in medical record Support MNT in clinic  Include, discuss and referral from start  Incentives and rewards for MNT visit  Ask/respond to client request for MNT

73 73 Needed: Proactive Healthy Clinic Lessons Learned Take responsibility and power Educate & support staff: promote:  Nutrition and health knowledge  Clients’ food, nutrient and safety needs Change the menu and food/ water safety practices for client and non-client events  Meetings, parties, fund raisers, vending machines, vouchers, board meetings, holidays, etc.
