HEALTHY FOR LIFE: MEN AND HIV

Being diagnosed with HIV shouldn’t stop you from living a full, productive life – but you may need to make some changes to your diet and lifestyle to help you stay healthier for longer.

Which Age Group Are You?

You’ve got your first real job and you’re making new friends. It is important that you don’t forget your health at this age. If you look after yourself and make small lifestyle changes now, you could reach a life expectancy the same as someone who is HIV negative.

You're probabaly relatively untouched by the normal effect of ageing which you'll face further down the road.  However busy you are, don't negelct your health. Your 30s are important years for reducing the likelihood of problems later in life.

Greyness and wrinkles should be the least of your worries in your 40s. Added responsibility, both at home and at work, can mean added pressure – and your health may take a back seat and suffer. Look out for signs and symptoms of ageing and take all the necessary health precautions now.

By the time you’re in your 50s, you probably can’t escape the fact that you’re getting older – you may notice new aches and pains or changes in your wellbeing. There are a number of things to look out for.

You’ve hit your 60s and are heading for your retirement years; you can start enjoying a slower pace of life. Continue your healthy living regime throughout your 60s and beyond to enjoy a good quality of life.
