Having worked with people who are HIV positive in the past I wished this book had been available then.
The book is written by experts and edited by a specialist dietitian. It covers all aspects of the disorder plus managing the condition from a nutritional point of view.
an introduction which included basic information about diagnosis and the state of the epidemic plus key information on nutrition;
paediatric nutrition, maternal and child health covering mother to child transmission of HIV as well as screening, healthy eating and management;
nutritional management of the HIV disease state provides a plethora of excellent information on all aspects of nutrition;
healthy living and long‐term management discusses all aspects of lifestyle;
nutritional management of HIV and co‐morbidities; and
palliative, end of life care provides a sensitive approach to this difficult subject.
I found this book both easy to read and also the type of book one can easily dip into. It is a must for any dietitian or anyone who deals with this area of practice.
