Study of intervention, prospective,uncontrolled Group Number: 1
Group Type:Other - the subjects of group were compared the initial moment (M0 - moment without soluble fiber supplementation)with the others two moments: M1 (one month after soluble fiber supplementation) and M2 (four months after soluble fiber supplementation).
Group Description - HIV-positive individuals with hypertriglyceridemia (serum levels ≥ 200 to ≤ 500 mg/dL),who had been on the same HAART regimen for at least 6 months, had no change in therapy during the study.
Intervention:Received 20g/day of soluble fiber® (partially hydrolyzed guar gum) for 4 months at pre-established times.
Dietary Supplement: soluble fiber® (partially hydrolyzed guar gum)
HIV-positive individuals with hypertriglyceridemia and who had been on the same HAART regimen for at least 6 months, had no change in therapy during the study,received 20g/day of soluble fiber for 4 months at pre-established times.
Other Name: Benefiber® (Novartis)
- Serum TG and TG/HDL-c ratio reduction was observed at all time points, but statistical significance was found just at M0 and M2. Regarding serum cytokines, TNFα- and IL-6 significantly decreased between M0 and M2, and only IL-6 reduced between M1 and M2. [ Time Frame: four months ]
