Our expert says:
Weightloss is one of the most serious side-effects of HIV/AIDS which needs to be counteracted to help the patient to fight this dreaded disease. Patients need high energy and protein intakes to assist them to gain weight. Unfortunately the disease often causes diarrhoea and infections of the gastrointestinal tract that make it difficult to select suitable foods. The most useful guidelines on a diet for patients with HIV/AIDS can be obtained by contacting the SA Sugar Association for 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: firstname.lastname@example.org for excellent information on diets for HIV. Click on 'Diet' at the top of this page and then on 'DietDoc's articles' to find the article I wrote awhile ago on "Update on HIV/AIDS & Diet" for some further information.
