Dear Becca
The correct diet can make a great difference to a patient's overall health and immunity. 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: for excellent information on diets for HIV. Also do a search on the DietDoc Website with “Diets for HIV/AIDS” by clicking on ‘Diet’ at the top of this page and then doing the search.
Best regards
