A Prospective Study of Dietary Intake and Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome in HIV-Seropositive Homosexual Men

Author(s): Abrams B, D Duncan, I Hertz-Picciotto
Published in: Study on the effects of nutritional intake and the developme.   Aug 6, 1993
6 Journal of Acquired Immune Deficiency Sy 8 949-58

This is a study performed to attempt to find a link between nutrition intake and the development of AIDS in HIV-positive homosexual men. The study was performed over 6 years. Participants kept detailed logs of food intake, multivitamin supplements taken, health symptoms and other potentially health-effecting variables such as smoking, drinking and drug use. Because the subjects were all properly nourished, this study was unable to study the affect of malnutrition on the development of AIDS.

In this study, risk of developing AIDS was based on CD4 T-lymphocyte count, HIV symptoms and other variables. No nutrients were directly associated with AIDS as a result of this study, but it was shown that as general health and intake of the 11 micronutrients increased, risk of developing AIDS significantly decreased, and CD4 count was higher at the baseline level. It was also deduced that taking a multivitamin also dramatically reduces the risk of developing AIDS.

This is a study performed to attempt to find a link between nutrition intake and the development of AIDS in HIV-positive homosexual men. The study was performed over 6 years, with semi-annual follow-up appointments. Participants kept detailed logs of food intake, multivitamin supplements taken, health symptoms and other potentially health-effecting variables such as smoking, drinking and drug use. Subjects who had or developed AIDS within the first year were thereafter excluded from the study, as well as participants whose diets failed to exceed 1000 calories/day. Because the subjects were all properly nourished, this study was unable to study the affect of malnutrition on the development of AIDS.

In this study, risk of developing AIDS was based on CD4 T-lymphocyte count, HIV symptoms and other variables. No nutrients were directly associated with AIDS as a result of this study, but it was shown that as general health and intake of the 11 micronutrients increased, risk of developing AIDS significantly decreased, and CD4 count was higher at the baseline level. Prominent in this health factor were iron, vitamin E, and riboflavin. For those who had HIV symptoms (summed up in the participants' survey as "poor health"), results showed that the risk of AIDS quadrupled. It was also deduced that taking a multivitamin also dramatically reduces the risk of developing AIDS.

The study was performed over 6 years, with semi-annual follow-up appointments. Participants kept detailed logs of food intake, multivitamin supplements taken, health symptoms and other potentially health-effecting variables such as smoking, drinking and drug use. Subjects who had or developed AIDS within the first year were thereafter excluded from the study, as well as participants whose diets failed to exceed 1000 calories/day. Overall, 296 men qualified to provide relevant results. Regional foods were also implemented into the participants' diets in order to raise the tested foods count to 114. Because the subjects were all properly nourished, this study was unable to study the affect of malnutrition on the development of AIDS.

In this study, risk of developing AIDS was based on CD4 T-lymphocyte count, HIV symptoms and other variables. No nutrients were directly associated with AIDS as a result of this study, but it was shown that as general health and intake of the 11 micronutrients increased, risk of developing AIDS significantly decreased, and CD4 count was higher at the baseline level.
