Our expert says:
If possible I would recommend that you consult a clinical dietitian (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), because it is important that you should not be losing weight as this can depress your immunity. The dietitian will have to work out a diet prescription for your that takes your condition, the weightloss and type of ARVs into account when working out the correct diet for you. Please don't stress, because this can put more strain on your body. You can also 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: firstname.lastname@example.org for excellent information on diets for HIV.
