Hiv aids long term effects

Common Questions and Answers about Hiv aids long term effects


Avatar m tn I am also aware that HIV is not diagnosed on the basis of symptoms, but I was wondering whether face fat loss and redistribution of fat is caused by early HIV infection, anti-retro viral medications or long-term HIV infection that has progressed to AIDS?
1689583 tn?1387752394 It's scary to me too. I spoke with my doc and she said that those with HIV never complain about any long term effects, it's always the hcv folks which may indicate it could be the hep c impact, not the cure. Most people i have seen post on long term erects have treated multiple times or for two years +. I am hoping that the new drug and shorter treatment time reduces the risk if it is the drugs. Still scary.
Avatar m tn Also, we are learning that long term HIV survivors probably have higher rates than HIV uninfected persons of coronary heart disease, stroke, and other health problems -- and perhaps higher rates of various cancerns as well. It remains to be seen how much these problems will undercut the benefits of reduced mortality due to AIDS itself.
Avatar n tn I am an early-30s gay man and am considering getting the Gardasil vaccine. My reasons: to reduce the risk of warts (which I haven't had before) as well as anal/penile cancers. I'm expecting to pay out of pocket since at my age/gender this is "off-label". I'm interested in hearing your opinion on my choice to seek it out, but my primary question is about long-term side effects. I've read about and am not very concerned about the short-term effects.

Avatar f tn BUT, I have to take it or I am in pain. So try not to worry so much about the long term effects when you are trying to survive today. If you are worried about this I would talk to my doctor and let them know what you are experiencing and there may be something they can do differently. Just dont stop any seizure med without a doctors help. Hope you feel better..

747988 tn?1396536878 hi folks-just looking around for info re long term side effects of treatment and came across you lot ranting away on your keyboards! I successfully completed 6months tx in april 2007 and am now unable to do very much due to the fatigue,pain and confusion I've suffered since. Just wanted to be added to the list of damaged souls. Have lost a lot of friends to this horrible disease so am very glad to have cleared it but at what cost?
Avatar m tn dont be too scared as said above few people experience sides but one thing is for sure long term use for decades is not healthy and only cirrhosis or severe damaged liver can justify such use so i'd definitely combo with other therapies so that nucs can be used short term from latest easl conference we have now tests for sustained immune control of hbv cccdna equal or less than 5 copies/cell we now need an hbsag level equal to 5copies/cell, mybe hbsag 500iu/ml
Avatar m tn The theory of these groups is that hiv is not the cause of aids, and the medicines are really dangerous in long.-term. And as you said teak you have been livin almost 30 years infected...
Avatar m tn How long does it take to have skin ploblems from hiv like red or purple spots.Or is that later in the advanced stages of hiv?
Avatar n tn No, because neither have specific symptoms. AIDS definition is when ones CD4 drops down to 200 or less or one has a low CD4 but also has an O.I. Once you are in the AIDS classification it no longer matters how high you CD4 level gets, your classification will stay as having AIDS. If you don't care for the term AIDS, you can use Advance HIV Disease it means the same.

Avatar f tn I'm recovering from an abscessed tooth. Mine developed 3 weeks ago and 2 days lator I had to have an Endodonist drain it on an emergency basis because the swelling was already moving up to my eye. I was told to get the tooth extracted because of my medical condition (Type 1 Diabetic). After I got it drained my dentist put me on 4,000mg of Amoxicillin a day becasue I had to get rid of the infection and the swelling had to continue to go down before he extracted the tooth.
