|What vitamins and minerals are depleted by HIV and medicaitons?
Jun 1, 2001
I have a twice-monthly injection of B-12. What other vitamins and minerals might HIV and medications deplete?
Response from Dr. Feinberg
HIV doesn't specifically deplete B12, and I am not aware of any other vitamins or minerals that are directly affected by HIV or by antiviral medications for HIV.
