AIDS and bone diseases

There are a number of cases of people developing bone disorders in connection with AIDS, but here’s a recent one courtesy of the San Francisco Chronicle:

“And I had this incident 10 years ago where I had a bone fracture in my wrist, and they went through five operations and they couldn’t fix it, the bones were too brittle. The brittle bone thing, that wasn’t supposed to happen to people my age. That’s very advanced. And I had this curvature of my spine, again, too early.”

“I was diagnosed with HIV in ’88. They put me on AZT and I had some trouble – AZT was very, very tough stuff to take, and they were giving us very large doses back then. But I went on everything that was available. Any scientific options, choices, risks, trials – I was there.”

In my book I have divorced HIV from AIDS with a unique co-hypothesis. Before you open your mouth in horror, read it maybe?
