Hi Riza
Yes you can definitely give her Moducare. There is a food supplement that works quite well called Sibusiso Ready Food Supplement – ask your pharmacy to order for you – it is expensive but keeps quite long – it looks like peanut butter and can be eaten just like this or on bread. Diet should be fresh fruit and vegetables, fruit juices, grains and wholewheat and meat without preservatives.

Please try Canova, my CD4 count was 204 and it helped a lot.

Please ask her to contact her local Hospice for advive on all these questions and more. They are also there with a multi disciplinary team to help for support of her and her family.
