HIV/AIDS

Hiv

Being infected with HIV leads to progressive suppression of the immune system, eventually rendering the body susceptible to opportunistic infections. Nutritional issues are diverse and include avoiding nutritional deficiencies, prevent/treat unintentional weight loss/gain and management of complications associated with HAART.

Now that is a mouth full and might be the last thing you are thinking about. With the correct motivation, support and knowledge people living with HIV/AIDS can have a healthy lifestyle.
