Dear Sixo
In some cases, but certainly not all, people living with HIV/AIDS develop diarrhoea as a result of the infection and if they use milk products during the diarrhoea, then the condition may get worse. The patients should avoid milk products during bouts of diarrhoea, but when the diarrhoea has healed, then patients can usually continue to use milk products, esp yoghurt and sour milk like maas. 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. 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".
