    Nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors used in antiretroviral therapy may cause mitochondrial toxicity. Mitochondrial dysfunction leads to disturbance of the glucose metabolism, resulting in an accumulation of L-lactate. We tested the hypothesis that an oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT)...
