Result: Form the PRO scale, we can see that the treatment group showed a trend of stability, compared with the control group with significant statistical difference (P<0.05) after 6 months; from the WHOQOL-HIV scale analysis, we can see that compared with before treatment, the quality of life of the treatment group was increased, the difference was significant (P<0.05), but the quality of life of the control quality of life was decreased, the differences was significant (P<0.05).
