Food and exercise to improve the quality of a HIV life
Nov 13, 2000

hi, I have a friend who has recently discovered that he has aids. he does not place much emphasis on hygiene or health. he takes drugs, parties hard and sometimes does not sleep for days. what can i recommend to him to improve his quality of life in the line of a healthy diet and moderate exercise. i don't think he has long to life if he persists at his current life-style!!!!

YOUR HELP WILL BE GREATLY APPERIATED IN THE FORM OF A DAILY DIET&EXCECISE PLAN

Response from Dr. Dieterich

It does not sound like anything you tell him will be effective. However,there is no magic here. He should do what his mother would tell him to do. Eat 3 times per day a well balanced diet high in vegetables and fruit. He should exercise aerobically at least 3 x per week and sleep 7-8 hours per night, all just common sense. Good luck with him!
