Dear Sir, Should hiv +ve patients on ART regime contimue with multivitamins
Response from Dr. Young
While some recommend a daily multivitamin, I think that for most American patients, this is unnecessary. A well balanced (or even somewhat unbalanced diet) delivers all the needed vitamins and minerals.
I'd focus my preventive medicine efforts (and money) on diet, exercise, quitting smoking and the like.
