Vitamin Research in HIV- anything exciting now?
Nov 12, 2008
I have been reading your emails about supplements and HIV and you seem to be concerned that the research has slowed down. My question is: what is being studied right now, if any?
Response from Mr. Vergel
I am glad you asked this question. I have done a search on clinical trials.gov and have actually found some really interesting studies that are currently enrolling:
Micronutrient Supplemented Probiotic Yogurt for HIV/AIDS and Other Immunodeficiencies
Effects of Mixed Exercise Regime and L-Carnitine Supplementation in HIV Patients
Chromium Picolinate to treat HIV related diabetes
The Prevalence of Vitamin D Deficiency and Effects of Vitamin D Supplementation
Acupuncture for Nausea in HIV
So, I guess I was not 100% correct when I said there is little research on nutritional and complementary therapies in HIV
I encourage everyone to call these sites and support these studies
