It is becoming increasingly evident that nutrition is not only an important component of health but also that levels of specific nutrients can affect disease expression. This is particularly apparent in the realm of HIV disease. Despite this knowledge, research in this area, especially pertaining to the pediatric population, has been limited. This report presents a narrative review and critique of the work that has been conducted in the area of micronutrients including descriptive, correlational, and intervention studies. Gaps in knowledge, recommendations for future research, and nursing implications are highlighted. Current information suggests a role for micronutrients in the treatment of HIV disease, and further research will help develop these adjunct therapies that can affect the overall outcomes and quality of life of these patients.
