As the AIDS crisis continues, nutrition therapy has taken an important role in maximizing the body's capacity to fight HIV infection and AIDS as well as improving the quality of life when living with AIDS. Nutritional Care of HIV-Positive Persons: A Manual for Individuals and Their Caregivers presents principles, rules, and directions needed to address diet and nutrition issues for those living with HIV, with or without a diagnosis of AIDS. Written by nutritionists who have experience with AIDS, this "how-to" manual balances traditional sources of information with common experiences.

Although written for the layman, the book is unusual in its inclusion of scientific and medical information. It addresses all groups, including women, infants, and children, reflecting the spread of the disease into all segments of the population. Discussion of selected topics are spiced with "how to" specifics that provide information on how nutrition can be used to maximize the body's capacity to fight HIV infection and AIDS.

Focusing only on nutrition, Nutritional Care of HIV-Positive Persons fills the gap between "brochures" and scholarly research publications. It is an authoritative, practical guide for those living with HIV.
