Nutrition specifics

Sep 10, 2013

Hi Nelson!

I'm writing an article for HIV awareness day and would like to know what are some of the main challenges in educating people about a special diet when undergoing treatment. Do find any serious biases out there? How different should a diet be for someone living with HIV if they already eat healthy? What kinds of specific nutrients/foods would one need in addition (or instead of what they already consume)? Does that vary by medication? Could you mention a few examples?
