Can I drink cola or other soda?
I found out three months ago that I am HIV positive and I immediately started on ART the very same day. My question is on drinking cola. Will drinking cola affect my CD4 and viral load?
Thanks for your question – how are you doing?
Great you started treatment – this will be good for your health and also protect your partners.
Drinking cola will not affect your CD4 or viral load. It does contain a lot of sugar though, so is not a good drink for your general health, especially if you drink too much cola :)
