Common Questions and Answers about Aids guidelines


Avatar f tn Since you are in India. the guidelines is 6 months as per south Asian bodies, but u can absolutely trust any result thats post 3months mark. Also since u have said your encounters are post 8 months. u have covered the longest window period. Test is the only way to know your status, not symptoms.
Avatar f tn "Lyme is the number one tick-borne illness in the US. The CDC reports there are 24,000 new cases of Lyme disease in the US but the CDC says that figure could be under reported by tenfold. ILADS believes newly diagnosed cases of Lyme may occur at a rate five times higher than the number of new AIDS cases. Chronic Lyme is reported in up to half of patients treated for Lyme.

Avatar f tn Antibody production can take anywhere from 3-12 weeks +/- after exposure, but all humans WILL eventually develop antibodies. There has never been a case of anyone going from HIV to full blown AIDS without developing antibodies.

Avatar n tn t use odds on this forum and we go strictly by the guidelines. The 3 month guidelines are set by the manufacture of the tests.
Avatar m tn Yes according to most national guidelines, I know. However not in France where the labs, docs and the Aids Organisation gives you a conclusive result after 6 weeks. They told me I was negative and don't need do further testings, unless I had another unsafe event since. The french have discovered the virus, so they seem to have good science on HIV/Aids there.

Avatar f tn The guidelines we go by at MedHelp are the recommendations of some of the worlds most well known and respected HIV/AIDS experts. We recommend the 4th generation DUO test 28 days post exposure and a confirmatory test at 12 weeks for a 100% conclusive result. Your doctor goes by different guidelines. Perhaps you should ask him why he thinks so many experts are wrong.
Avatar m tn As of November 2009, 23,731 HIV/AIDS cases have been reported in the country (National HIV/AIDS Program of the Ministry of Health). The Joint United Nations Program on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) estimates that in 2007, 35,000 Salvadorans were living with HIV (UNAIDS 2008 Report on the Global AIDS Epidemic). Incidence appears to have declined since 2004, but there is a fear that HIV/AIDS cases are underreported due to lack of an effective monitoring system.

I moved on from this even thought I have not been feeling unwell ever since, I figured residual anxiety, depression, ect. My problems are the following symptoms: -purple blotches in the form of a lesion formed on my forehead, separate ones, one of them very large and spanning from almost the whole left side of my temple. -The whites of my eyes are dull,.
Avatar n tn I found lots of sites pointing different guidelines for possible hcv hiv coinfection. Dr. Mcgovern of the body says there are different guidelines for possible coinfection according to cdc. Why is hcv different then any other virus? I don't mean to be annoying I'm just a bit nervous and I keep coming back to this logic if one virus can cause delayed seroconversion why not another?
Avatar m tn Human Services and the Massachusetts Aids Action Committee where they also told me my tests are conclusive and no further testing was needed. I also read that the UK recently updated their testing protocol and no longer recommend the 3 month test... they recommend 4 week ag/ab and follow up test at 8 weeks only if the Dr. Believes the patient was at a high risk for infection.

Avatar m tn I was dating a guy for nine months who I believe is at high risk for having HIV. At the time I had no idea. Three or so months after first having intercourse I started coming down with many health problems. I developed pneumonia, strange blotches on my body, and oral thrush. My doctor didn't figure out that I had pnuemonia for a couple of months and thought that the allergy medication he had me on for the skin blotches had caused the oral thrush.
