a Variables excluded from the model for lumbar spine DXA T-score assessment: bone alkaline phosphatase, drug addiction , time since HIV diagnosis, score of ART and PI exposure.

b Variables excluded from the model for femoral neck DXA T-score assessment: BMI score, Bone alkaline phosphatase, time since HIV diagnosis, score of ART and PI exposure, HIV/HCV co-infection.
