From the information you have conveyed, a history of HIV shows that the human immune system is prone to decline, so that patients with HIV are prone to infection and easily experience health problems. If HIV patients lack discipline in maintaining their physical condition, type of food, and rest, then the risk of health problems due to certain conditions can occur.
If your body weight has decreased due to this HIV illness journey, it is necessary that you consider fulfilling the balance of nutritional needs and additional supplements in your daily life, whether in the form of controlling your activities, choosing food, getting enough fluids and resting you.
If your doctor does not recommend consuming milk, then he may mean taking it together with ARV drugs, or consuming milk that is not properly processed.
Thus, based on several sources regarding diet in HIV, HIV patients need to pay attention to food safety to prevent the risk of decline in their body systems due to poorly processed food, food that is not stored, and served properly. Because if the food does not meet food safety, there is a risk of causing health problems in HIV patients. Likewise, if the milk you consume is not known for its food safety, then you should avoid consuming this milk, because the processing of milk that is not suitable for food safety will cause the growth of microorganism contamination that may harm HIV patients.
However, when an HIV patient has diarrhea, either mild or severe diarrhea, you should avoid milk in the menu.
In addition, there are also food safety recommendations that emphasize not to consume raw food, unpasteurized milk or improperly processed milk products.
Thus, the important point of the information above is that patients with HIV must start paying attention to the safety of the food they consume, reading food labels, paying attention to the processing of food they eat, and storing food properly before eating. And in general, consuming milk can be done, but you must know the safety of the milk you eat and not drink milk at the same time as the medicine you are taking. And if the patient has diarrhea, you should avoid consuming milk in their daily menu.
Furthermore, you can discuss with the doctor who treats you regarding the food restrictions that have been conveyed, this is necessary, because your doctor knows more about your current clinical condition.
That's the info we can convey, read also the diet.
