Exercise and Sauna

Nov 22, 2011

Hello again Doctor BY , I just need to know if Sauna is beneficial or harmful for HIV + people? I love to go to the gym because I love to look good and feel good , I think that feeling good with your physical appearance is great because it helps you emotionally , I searched on the internet for the answer and unfortunately I did not find any information . What is your opinion on this? And once again ,Thank You a million times for your help! :)


Response from Dr. Young

Hello Daylet,

Nice to hear from you again. Exercise (in moderation) is a good thing for everyone- good for preventing high blood pressure and diabetes and bone disease (if it's weight-bearing).

I don't know of any specific harm or benefit from sauna with regards to people living with HIV, so short of hyperthermia, it should be fine.

Be well, BY
