Arvs and vitamins
Feb 11, 2014

Surely there must be a link between the arv reduction of certain body functions eg. Liver and the assistance in its function with the help of vitamens

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for posting.

Most ARVs are very well tolerated and if appropriately selected and monitored, they only rarely cause organ toxicity.

Vitamins don't prevent liver toxicity- despite huge bogus marketing claims to the contrary. Vaccinations to prevent viral hepatitis (A and B) and avoidance of excess alcohol are probably the most important things to promote good liver health.
