It is unfortunate that while Highly Active Antiretroviral Therapy (HAART) has become the standard of care among HIV positive patients, the medications have been associated with metabolic abnormalities recognized to cause lipidemia. The purpose of this cross sectional analytical study (n=310) was to establish lipidemia status and associated factors among HIV positive adult male patients attending HIV clinic at Kericho District Hospital. Purposive sampling was used to select the study hospital and study subject by gender. Systematic sampling was used to select study samples (n=310) and sub sample for 24 hour recall (n=155). A structured questionnaire was used to collect data on the social, demographic, economic, cultural, 24 hour recall, and anthropometric. Lipid profile assessment was performed on fasting blood sample using standard automated procedures (Cobas Mira Plus-Roche, USA). Physical activity was assessed using a physical activity questionnaire. A measure of central tendency was carried out for demographic, social and economic data. Anthropometric data analysis involved the display of mean and standard deviation of calculated BMI and skin fold measurement. Biochemical analysis was done through measure of central tendency with proportion for LDL, HDL, triglycerides and total cholesterols. 24 hour recall was analyzed for mean nutrient consumption for key nutrients and the 7 day recall was analysed for food frequency. Physical activity data was analyzed for mean and standard deviations.
