Hi Dr. Rosedale,

I greatly enjoy your writings and I wanted to ask you a question. Do you have any experience treating HIV patients with Low Carb? I would imagine that the immune deficiency would mirror the auto immune advice, but is this so? Also, blood lipids and body fat distribution are affected by the anti retrovirals, do you know if low carb has a beneficial effect on either of these phenomena?

Thanks for your time,

    Dear Nichelle,

    Sorry Dr. Rosedale is out of the office and has not been able to get an answer to you yet. However, in many HIV patients keeping their immune systems strong is key. Here is an article that might help regarding immune systems.

    Best of health,

    The Rosedale Team.
