Dear Monwabisi
You can contact the SA Sugar Association to obtain their Booklet on 'Food Choices for People Living with HIV' from The Nutrition Department, SA Sugar Association, P O Box 700, Mount Edgecombe, 4300, or phone: (031) 508-7000, or send an e-mail to: nutrition@sasa.org.za for excellent information on diets for HIV (and other debilitating illnesses such as TB). You can also click on 'Diet' at the top of this page and then do a Search to find the article I wrote awhile ago on "Update on HIV/AIDS & Diet". Basically patients need to eat a high-energy diet that contains plenty of proteins, but because HIV can cause problems with certain foods, the patient needs to have the assistance of a dietitian to monitor how he/she is progressing. Visit the Association for Dietetics in SA Website at: www.adsa.org.za and click on "Find a Dietitian" to find a dietitian in your area who will assist HIV/AIDS patients with individual diets.
Best regards
