Abstract

We describe two cases of HIV/HCV co-infected patients developing adult onset diabetes mellitus. Neither was taking a protease inhibitor based regimen. We review the current recommendations for diabetes screening in this subset of patients and suggest that those managing co-infected patients pay particular attention to screening for abnormal glucose metabolism and elicit a full family history of metabolic disorders.
