Introduction: Inflammation caused by the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) leads to impairment in liver function in AIDS patients. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of combined training on the level of changes in liver enzymes (AST and ALT) in HIV-infected patients.
Materials and Methods: In this semi-experimental study, 30 AIDS male patients were targeted and selected based on convenient sampling and randomly divided into two groups: combined training and control. The combined training program was run for 12 weeks and 3 sessions per week. Aerobic training involved walking or jogging on the treadmill with a rising intensity and duration of 40% to 65% of maximum heart rate and duration of 30 -60 minutes. Also, Strength training included 2 to 4 sets and 12 to 20 repetitions per isotonic device in the range of 40% to 60% 1RM. Serum liver enzyme levels (AST and ALT) were measured using the ELISA kit. Data were analyzed by independent and dependent t-test at the p <0.05.
Results: The results showed that the levels of ALT (p=0.074) and AST (p=0.809) of AIDS patients in the exercise group were not significantly different from the control group. After 12 weeks of intervention, AST levels in the experimental group increased significantly compared to the pretest (p=0.036).
Conclusion: According to the results, it seems that regular combined training cannot reduce the liver enzyme disorder in AIDS patients.
