Changes in elevated cholesterol in the era of Tenofovir: risk factors, clinical management and outcomes

Older patients and patients with increase BMI are at an increased risk of high cholesterol and should therefore be monitored closely and perhaps be prioritised for cholesterol-lowering drugs, while at the same time receiving lifestyle and dietary counselling.
