HIV+ve..but NO supplements
Jun 4, 1999

Dear Doctor,

I am hive+ve since december 1998..but my doctors said that I don't need any treatment ..even he didnot check my viral load or my cd4...but I feel very week you think that I need some supplements like multivitamins or vitaminC ,,I heard that some people take N Acetyle cystine and glutamine and zinc you think that I have to take these supplements ...becuase my doctor is not helpful ,,he is not giving me any advice ..

Many thanks for your help

Response from Dr. Fisher

If your doctor is not helpful, try another doctor. Try seeing a nutritionist also. You must have your CD4 and viral load checked immediately! And a full health assessment! Alvan Fisher, M.D.
