Diet and exercise in HIV+
Sep 7, 1999

What are the benefits of regular exercise and a controlled diet in HIV+ individuals?

Response from Dr. Fisher

Controlled diet is to provide appropriate nutrients to enhance the functioning of the immune system in particular and the body in general. Alvan Fisher, M.D.
