So I was told by a friend who is also Positive that sushi isn't good to eat anymore... Is this true...Cause I love sushi...and eat it like a few times a month

Response from Dr. Holodniy

In general any raw seafood can contain certain bacteria or parasites that can make people sick, whether they are HIV infected or not. That said, people eat sushi every day and don't have problems. It comes down to whether your HIV infection is in good control and getting sushi from a reputable provider. Otherwise, buyer beware.

Is my initial CD4 count artificially low because of severe acute HIV infection
