My niece has used ARVs since 2005. By then she had devloped AIDS. she also has an duodenal ulcer.She lately developed side effects such as severe abdominal pains, nausea and vomiting and a distended abdomen. she was admitted to hospital due to dehydration.She is awaiting CD4 results.Would some aloe vera juice kelp to relieve the gastric symptoms?
