Q. I have HIV. Are there any foods that I need to stay away from? If so, which ones. Also, is it OK drink alcohol with having HIV?
A. HIV positive people should try to follow general healthy living advice-a diet with plenty of fruit and veg, limited red meat and processed products, good consumption of fish and chicken. You should avoid uncooked food and risky unusual foods. Hydration is important and alcohol of course can be enjoyed within healthy drinking limits. Two to three units of alcohol a day should be fine, and binge drinking should be avoided if possible.
