as mentioned in “For example, we saw dramatic improvements in depression, the distress of having diabetes, diabetes self-management, trading-off between food and healthcare, and HIV medication adherence.”
Jan. 25 (UPI) — A new study from the University of California at San Francisco shows a healthy diet can benefit people with HIV and type 2 diabetes.
The study showed nutritious diets lessened symptoms of depression and incidences of binge drinking overall.
Researchers followed 52 participants for six months and found that in people with type 2 diabetes, nutritious diets helped them have optimal blood sugar control and decreased hospitalizations and emergency department visits.
For participants with HIV, the study found significantly more adherence to antiretroviral therapy, which increased from 47 percent to 70 percent.
Mediterranean diet may help treat HIV, diabetes patients
The Mediterranean diet fulfilled 100 per cent of daily caloric requirements for people living with HIV and Type 2 diabetes.
People with diabetes who ate the nutritious food showed better long-term control of their blood sugar, reduced hospitalisations or emergency department visits.
People who received healthy food and snacks for six months showed dramatic improvements in depression, the distress of having diabetes, diabetes self-management, trading off between food and healthcare and HIV medication adherence.
The patients also had fewer symptoms of depression and were less likely to binge drink.
For those with HIV, adherence to antiretroviral therapy increased from 47 to 70 per cent.
