Is Omega 3 Recommended?

Aug 29, 2010

Is Omega 3 recommended? My CD4 is 268 and I am not taking any suppliments except my for nevirepine & Truvada. I was diagnoised last yeast Jan with a CD4 count of 2, am 39years.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

It is not always recommended for everybody, but can be beneficial in those with lipid problems, either because of HIV meds or just because of underlying cholesterol/triglyceride problems. However, no real problem and likely some benefit for you in any case.

Low viral load and low CD4 count
