HIV/AIDS/TB SUPPORTIVE NUTRITION SUPPLEMENTS:
ACTIVE INFECTION eg AIDS, TB; and CANCER
are often a problem of defective NUTRITION among many important contributing factors.
Both infection; cancer; and chronic anti-infection/ anti-cancer drugs
promote poor nutrition, loss of other infection protection, and loss of muscle and bone.
Those with high risks of infections or cancer, and
those on anti-infection/ anticancer therapy, and
those in whom such therapy has failed,
should be offered both counselling;
measurement of lean mass, fat mass; and
risk of osteoporosis bone fracture; and
various regimes of complementary cancer/ infection NUTRITIONAL support.
Both with aging, illness, therapy, and with increasingly poorer food supplies, rising costs and pollution, the best diets cannot supply anywhere near optimal micronutrients – the effective doses of all ~15 vitamins, ~10 minerals, and the scores of biologicals– the dozens our own bodies make but run out of (including hormones), those from other species eg fish oil, glucosamine, and herbs.
