Is Probiotics Safe for people living with HIV?
Aug 1, 2013

Hello Dr. Young,

Recently I read that probiotic supplements can help reduce inflammation. I also read people living with HIV should avoid those types of supplements. What's true? My VL is undetectable and CD4 is 550, I am on Truvada, Reyataz, and Norvir. Please let me know thank you.

Response from Mr. Vergel

I have written a few articles that will give you the information you seek:

A "Gut Feeling" Emerges in HIV

Can Bugs Increase CD4 Cells?

In health,

Nelson
