Kshtrashal Singh


Substantial loss of body mass occurs amongst Acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) wasting syndrome (AWS) patients. The objective was to assess the influence of exercise on the body mass in acquired immune deficiency virus wasting syndrome patients. Experimental research on sixty patients of thirty years to thirty five years found through purposive sample. The body mass significantly increases in all groups exercising for one hour three times a weeks during twelve to sixteen weeks. The parameters influence the magnitude of the increase. It was concluded that short-term exercise has a positive effect on AWS patients. The body mass increases significantly as a result of exercise.
