Advice on eating please.
      07/07/08 04:35 AM

My partner has full blown AIDS and is going trough a very tough time at the moment. He's been diagnosed with MAS as well and had to undergo an operation recently leaving him very weak and EXTREMELY wasted away. Our Dr also changed his cocktail and the side effects are making it difficult to get him to eat properly.

Basically, can anybody give me some advice as to what I can give him to keep his strenght up and to start getting better? Currently I give him 'Ensure' 3 times a day as he can keep that in, but I'm sure that there are better alternatives. His CD4 count is low but he is undedectable, so the ARV's are working. He's also taking nearly 3000m.g of Antibiotics per day to fight the MAS - some of which also make him naseous...

I'm at my whit's end at the moment. Feel so powerless to help him...
