Avatar m tn According to the South African HIV/AIDS hotline , they say that if the condom has no failure ie broken then you are protected , South Africa has the highest infection rate in the world and the main preventetive measure that our government is trying to enforce is condom use , unfortunately in the black community condom use is not practises because of tribal belief systems still in place ...
Avatar n tn The 25 US states with the highest potato consumption rates have an AIDS rate 117% lower than the other 25 states. The odds of that happening by chance are about 7752 to 1 against. Those states also have a leukemia rate 7.5% higher with odds of about 762 to 1, and a lymphoma rate 8% higher with odds of about 708 to 1. These numbers argue (but don't prove) that potatoes increase white blood cell counts. Has anyone ever noticed this association before?
Avatar m tn Anal sex is one of the highest exposures and Oraquick tests are not able to give a conclusive negative test earlier than 3 months post exposure.
Avatar n tn Some people on this site feel that it is very hard to get HIV/AIDS, but I think this is an eye opener. I would like to see what the experts have to say? A new study from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, that tested over 8,000 people in 21 cities, found that one in FIVE gay men in the United States has HIV, and almost half of those who carry the virus are unaware that they are infected.
Avatar n tn The MSM infection rate is 1 in 10 in London, even in Vauxhall highest estimate is 1 in 5 but certainly nowhere near 67% I guess the 67% figure is from an organisation with a political or social agenda.
Avatar n tn hi all, i live in a country where the HIV rate is very, very low, i recently had a wild night at a friends bachelor party. The reason i am worried is because i believe 50% chance the girl was a transexual (post-op), i read somewhere that these people have the highest risk of having HIV therefore i have been worried.
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.
Avatar f tn What is the danger of your heart rate being at 178 to 199 range for approximately 3 hours. Blood pressures were erratic highest being 235/100?
Avatar f tn while M2M have the highest rate, you cannot count out that some of those mans will also have sex with woman who will have sex with man. And 20 percent of the estimated 1 million HIV-positive Americans are unaware of their status, and this percent maybe growing. So It’s time to admit that HIV is still a major threat in the US. If i had been this aware i wouldnt have even think twice about any risk.
Avatar n tn if infected, the amount of HIV in blood and body secretions, which in turn is influenced by how recent the infection is, whether the person is sick with AIDS, and whether on anti-HIV therapy. Presence of other STDs, especially herpes, in either partner is an important issue, as is circumcision status of the insertive partner in vaginal or anal sex (higher risk if uncircumcised). And of course condom use.
Avatar f tn To shed some light on viral illness problems.... I used to think of viruses as... "just a virus", like a cold. There are a couple viruses that caught my attention to some degree. AIDS and Hepatitis are "just a virus". Later, I came to be terribly aware how bad a virus can be simply because there are no antibioics that can solve the problem.
Avatar n tn The rate of HIV is far higher in African Americans than in whites or persons of other race/ethnicities in the US. The low rate of AIDS in your geographic area should indeed be reassuring -- but the statistics you quote deserve some caution. It sounds like you are quoting reported cases of overt AIDS, and I'm sure there are many more persons with HIV that has not progressed to AIDS. In any case, there are other factors strongly in your favor.
Avatar f tn But why is TB mentioned as an aids defining illness?? If someone has TB does it mean they have AIDS? I read on your forum dr Hunter had said in the 1990s they would diagnose people with AIDS even without a positive HIV test! I am panicking so much right now.
Avatar m tn With having said this, does this mean the risk is even lower even tho I had the 2 mouth sores? Also, I know I am staying in the country with the highest hiv infection rate in the world, however this is mostly apllicable to the black population, as they make up 40 million of the 50 million, do you have any stats on the infections specifically pertaining to the white population? Thanks in advance!
Avatar m tn The average time for the deterioration to occur to the state where people begin to get the sorts of infections which define AIDS is about 10 years. Like all average figures, the rate of decline varies from person to person as does individual susceptibility to various infections but this is a general overview of what happens. Whether immunity deteriorates somewhat (but not necessarily dramatically)faster in older persons is unclear but there is some evidence that this may be the case.
