Foods and Supplements to gain weight
Apr 2, 2010
While on HIV and TB treatment what foods and supplements can one buy or get here in South Africa to gain weight and look healthier?
Response from Dr. Henry
Such recommendations depend on an assessment of your clinical status as well as diet and exercise habits. There is no one size fits all recommendation that I can make nor does one form of nutritional supplement merit blanket endorsement. Taking TB and HIV meds is often hard on the stomach/gut so maintaining good calorie intake with standard vitamin supplementation is the starting point for further intervention often supervised by your HIV specialist often with input from dietician if available where you are located.
