  Limitations and Caveats

Limitations of the study, such as early termination leading to small numbers of participants analyzed and technical problems with measurement leading to unreliable or uninterpretable data
High prevalence of generalized obesity; small sample size; short follow-up; not designed to assess the potential contribution of NRTIs to lipohypertrophy, nor could we exclude the NRTI backbone as a confounding factor.
