Swollen glands
Oct 31, 2008

If you are HIV Positive how do you treat swollen gland,what type of food do you eat,how do you reduce the viral load.

Response from Dr. Henry

Swollen glands in HIV infection are common and can be due to concentration of HIV and immune cells in lymph nodes, other HIV-related conditions, or non-HIV related conditions. There is no food or vitamin that I can recommend as effective for reducing swollen nodes. Assessment by an HIV specialist is recommended to make proper diagnosis and treatment recommendation. Reducing the viral load (generally to undetectable levels) is accomplished by effective use of antiretroviral therapy. KH
