Nutrition & Dietetics HIV

HIV is a virus which affects the immune system.

It can be diagnosed through a blood test by your GP, local specialist services, sexual health clinics or local support charities.

If you have been diagnosed with HIV you will be referred to specialist services.

Within this service a Dietitian helps educate and support by:

  • Providing nutritional support with eating and drinking
  • Providing long term lifestyle change support
  • Identifying and treating possible nutritional deficiencies
