lifestyle changes i should consider if i have recently been diagnosed with HIV?
| Response from Dr. Henry
That is a open ended question. I would suggest reading a self-help book like Healing HIV by Jon Kaiser and connecting with a support group and good HIV doc/clinic. Valuing your health more than ever involves decreasing use of cigarettes, alcohol, other drugs, better diet, more exercise and finding out about where you stand from the HIV perspective. You also need s good general medical evaluation so that other parts of your body are protected besides your T-cells. With hard work and a good attitude on your part, a little luck, and good medical care most people with HIV can do well for a very long period of time. KH
