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

Dear Tony

I am glad you asked this question. I have done a search on clinical 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 term=HIV&recr=Open&rank=340

A Trial of Vitamins and HAART in HIV Disease Progression

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
