Response from Dr. Young

Hello and sorry to learn about your sister's illness.

She is quite sick, with HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis and other complications. While there's no particular reason why she couldn't take aloe, the proven approach is rapid treatment for her TB and HIV with antiretroviral medications. Aloe is neither a treatment for, nor cure of HIV.

With a little luck, her health can be restored, but this will require a lot of close work with experienced care providers, coordination of care between her various doctors and adherence to her medications.

Best of health to her, BY

What do you recommend for first line regimen?
