Take Good Care of Your Immune System
You can strengthen your immune system by
eating well and using supplements to give your body the nutrients
it needs to fight infection. People with HIV are often found
to have low levels of certain nutrients. Sometimes the drugs
used to treat HIV, along with the infections caused by HIV,
reduce the levels of nutrients the body can absorb.
It is important to talk to an HIV-knowledgeable
nutritionist to help you decide what kind of foods you should
eat and which supplements you should take. Call our nutritionist
to discuss your concerns. Talk to the pharmacist, nutritionist,
nurse and/or doctor who are familiar with the medications
you are taking before taking any supplements.
