Hiv aids home test

Common Questions and Answers about Hiv aids home test


Avatar n tn The test is the same for HIV or AIDS, AIDS can be called as the last stage of HIV, Hiv is the virus that causes AIDS, so the test is the same for both, a person is diagnosed with AIDS, after having and hiv positive test, and when their body has a CD4 count lower than 350.
Avatar m tn If someone contracted HIV which over time tunred into AIDS, would the Home Access HIV test still be effective? I believe the at home tests look for HIV, but if the HIV turned into actual AIDS would the at home test be able to identify this? Thank you.
Avatar m tn I went to the doc for an hiv test along with the other common stds at 3 or 4 weeks. Not sure what type but blood was used (negative). I later started to develope a rash that looked like red pimples on my ribs that also started to cover my upper back and a few on my thighs and arms. At about this time a started to get swollen lymph nodes under both arms that you could see (Several red sore bumps). The bumps went away after about a week and came back a week or two later.
Avatar m tn HIV has been around for over 30 years and there is no reason not to know how HIV is transmitted. Did you call your doctor and ask them or did you just go and get an HIV test and put your child through unwarranted stress? Any doctor would have advised you that your son didn't have an HIV concern.
12742885 tn?1427016324 I accepted this invitation, in hope that if these counts where low and that i was right it would show in these final test. The test came back, a test which here in Denmark where i live only is giving to HIV positive people because it is so expensive. My CD4 count was 1400, which meant that i was more than healthy and i lossed my mind. i though well how could it be possible. I had my tounge covered with fungus, my hands used to rash, yet know they are fully rashed and rashing another time.

Avatar m tn I did not read wrong. The doctor in this site has also mentioned it. I read his comments on this on two.separate threads. Can you guys tell me what test I can take that doesn't test for antibodies but the HIV itself. Like what test will someone showing advanced AIDS symptoms but keeps testing negative for antibodies. Serereversion in advance AIDS patients is documented. I been having diarrhea, and losing weight, and having many bacterial infections.
Avatar n tn The HIV test is totally different from the test that you had. Your test sounds like a complete blood count. If you feel the need for being tested for HIV, please, by all means, ask your doctor to please have you tested. It is a specialized test and must be marked "HIV" for the test requested. Hope this helped. HIV means you carry the virus; full-blown AIDS is the disease itself. There are many folks living with HIV who never develop full-blown aids.
Avatar f tn HIV is the virus that can lead to AIDS. An HIV test will test for antibodies to the HIV virus in your bloodstream (though there are Saliva tests and I beleive some urine based tests). Someone who is HIV+ does not automatically have AIDS. A definition of AIDS is when the CD4 count is measured as being below 250.
Avatar m tn i used my hands to help a man that was masterbating, i moved his organ back and forth several times then he ejaculated, some of his semen came on contact with my hand and fingers, then he did so with me, he used his hand on my organ then i ejaculated, do i have risk to have aids if he was hiv posetive??
Avatar m tn not I do not have a positive test simply asks why something I have read and I do not know if it is right
Avatar n tn but tommorow im goin to doctor and im goin to do a test . othervise i want be fully happy abt it . doing a test this early will show if i have it or not ??????? Kumar and lizzie i realy appreciate ur comments ..
Avatar f tn After finding the candida, the dr came in frantic and ordered that I have an HIV test because he had never seen this in anyone but aids patients. I was tested for HIV back in August, and the result was negative. I did have the test done, and in the mean time went to the drug store and took a home test- results were negative. When I went back to the dr, he told me I was HIV positive and I had to see an INfectious disease specialist.
Avatar f tn symptom chasing is pointless so ignore them when trying to diagnose HIV as the only way to do so is via a test. Test at 3 months post your last unpotected encounter to obtain a conclusive result, i suggest you stop worrying honestly, your partner may not have even had hiv and the symptoms you are experiencing is simply a result of your anxiety, take it easy and let us know how you get on!
Avatar f tn The FDA has conducted several investigations of the reliability and accuracy of unapproved HIV home test kits since 1996. Some studies show that manufacturers have falsely represented the accuracy of home test kits. One test kit cited in the warning was the EZ Medtest HIV Type I and Type II Home Test Kit, which was unable to consistently detect HIV antibodies in HIV-positive blood samples.
Avatar m tn hi guys.. i would just like to ask the reliability of the fujibio hiv test kit..i bought this online on a site in the philippines..i tested negative exactly 30 days after my possible exposure...
Avatar f tn one more thing , if i am still feeling worry is there any home test kits available for aids , kind thanks again .. appreicaite your advice.
Avatar n tn You will always test positive on an HIV test if you have HIV,even 20 years later.
Avatar n tn t find any hiv, so if a person has slept with somebody who has aids can the test still detect the aids virus after 2 or 3 years even when a person is close enough to die with aids do they still produce antibodies?
Avatar f tn I just found out about 12 years ago my mate was unfaithful and i have gotten tested recently with an third generation eia antibody test hiv1/2 with reflexes, a rapid blood test, 4 oraquick home tests and all came back negative. But ive read ur post that some people with aids antibodies wont show on those tests. Im very scared that im in that stage and the tests i took arent sufficient enough to know for sure.
Avatar m tn Thanks...sooo i do not need to take a test?...I'm not sexually active. But i red that u can get HIV AIDS from small cuts and it really got me worried. I cant sleep at night thinking about it.
