What are the benefits of regular exercise and a controlled diet in HIV+ individuals?
Response from Dr. Fisher
We all need and benefit from regular exercise. In people with HIV exercise has been shown to increase muscle mass and probably quality of life, energy levels and other effects. 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.
