The overweight and obesity is an important health problem that is observed around the world in the present day. Nevertheless, the overweight and obesity might be a forgotten problem in some specific groups of patients.

Of interest, there is a high incidence of overweight and obesity among our patients. The problem of overweight and obesity is rarely mentioned in HIV medicine. Due to the good antiretroviral therapy in control of HIV, the awareness of the problem among the HIV infected patients is required in the present day
