Diet for STD/HIV/AIDS Patients

There is, as our readers well know, no nutritional regimen that can prevent STD/HIV/AIDs. But a dietary plan that can help avoid complications in afflicted patients such as Anorexia, Nausea/vomiting/diarrhoea/ulcers can be devised to help treatment and in convalescence. The normal diet has to be to be modified by concentrating on simple cooking methods, leaving out highly seasoned and spiced foods, strongly flavoured vegetables, tough meats, rich and fried foods, and rich cakes and sweetmeats. Avoid raw or undercooked food including salads and fruit.

The recommneded meal-pattern for patients is:

Breakfast :
Fruit juices(cranberry, blueberry, kalojam juices recommended), porridge or cereal with milk, sugar. Bread or toast with preserves, butter /margarine. Weak tea, or milky coffee.

Mid-morning :
Enriched milk, light soup.

Soup or fruit juice. Fish or meat or cheese or egg dish. Lightly cooked vegetables. Sweet dish.

Bread and butter/margarine, preserves, plain cake, weak tea or milky coffee.

Fruit juice and soup. Main dish of fish or meat or egg or cheese.

Enriched Milk Drink.
