my mom is on acyclovir ( Valtrex) and zeptrigen
. She was diagnosed with Herpetic gingivo stomatitis ,has mouth sores and has spread into ears and face... is it ok to give food supplements containing Vit A,B,C,D, E , also my food supplement has 18 amino acids, zinc, 12 whole fruit blend, 12 whole vegetable blend and containing 16,000 phytonutrients... She is diabetic.... sores on the mouth prevented her from taking sold foods that is why she is now on soft diabetic diet but oatmeals and question is : does giving of food supplements affect her medication coz i believe that she has to have proper nutrition while on these drugs....the doctor advised to stop giving her food supplements...also could taking of porridge possibly cause elevation of blood sugar?
