Hiv aids training

Common Questions and Answers about Hiv aids training


Avatar f tn You have a lot of fear about diseases that you list so talk to your doctor about it and ask him if you should get therapy, because this is an HIV forum and you don't have HIV. Likely your doctors already told you the viral count is not important and the only thing that matters is you are negative which should make you happy. This summarizes your problem. "Just waiting that day i ll be diagnosed with like cancer,kidney failure,brain failure and something more severe than these.
Avatar f tn You tested negative so if the test was past the 4 week window, then you do not have HIV. HIV doctors can't diagnose from symptoms so neither you nor I can either so it is time to stop trying to link your symptoms with a diagnosis of HIV. SInce you work in a clinic I hope you can get more info on HIV there, so you will accept your negative tests.

Avatar f tn Hi, How are you? Physicians specializing in HIV or HIV specialist, have additional training and education as well as have adequate experience in treating, diagnosing and managing HIV. You can get in touch with them through infectious disease department in hospitals in your area or through local HIV/AIDS service agencies. Best regards.
Avatar n tn It is also our policy that every person who requests a HIV PCR test also have a standard HIV Elisa test at the same time at no additional cost to you. The standard AIDS test is an Elisa test, which tests for the antibodies your body makes for the AIDS virus. This test is the standard test used by hospitals and blood banks in America and the world. Positive tests are confirmed with a second test called the Western blot, which also analyzes the body's antibody response.
Avatar n tn Each site breaks it down by race (I'm sure the Seattle health department does the same thing), and for white men, the fraction living with HIV/AIDS in Austin and Houston are 1% and 2% respectively. Even if the true heterosexual risk to men were 0 (which I'm asking about, not claiming), you would certainly expect some people to lie about their risk factors, especially given the social costs of admitting homosexuality or IV drug use.
Avatar n tn Could I have been exposed to HIV if there was vaginal fluid or semen in a used condom? I know I am paranoid but I just want to make sure I don't pass this on to my wife. I am going to seek counseling as well since this paranoia is eating me up. Thanks so much in advance!!
Avatar n tn I wish and pray that you are correct, because I read also about oral sex. Risk of HIV The chance an HIV-negative person will get HIV from oral sex with an HIV-positive partner is extremely low. However, it is hard to know the exact risk because a lot of people who have oral sex also have anal or vaginal sex. The type of oral sex that may be the riskiest is mouth-to-penis oral sex. But the risk is still very low, and much lower than with anal or vaginal sex.
Avatar m tn So immediately got tested and came out negative but I'm going crazy thinking about it because i have to wait 12 weeks to get tested again A couple of days ago i went to see a dr. that specializes in HIV/aids he told me that i dont have nothing to worry about and that i should get tested in 8 weeks just for making things sure and he hasn't seen a infected person form oral sex in 25 years of his career.
Avatar n tn All we are saying is that transmission is a possibility if the biter has his own blood present in his mouth. The same thing suggested by the CDC in their review of published journal articles (above). The same thing documented in the case report 2004 article "Short Communication: HIV Type 1 Transmission by Human Bite" by Andreo et al in AIDS Research and Human Retroviruses. Do I think transmission by bite occurs frequently? No, I don't. I suspect it must be pretty rare.
Avatar m tn Hi I have HIV hep c gen 4 coinfection and chirosis. I have started interferon treatment but after only a week they say I may have to stop because of alarming plateletes counts. They are now schooling me on dying. All very efficient of them. But thing is I feel well and have some liver pain but low. I know my situation is serious but I sense a real tunnel vision in these doctors. No creative thinking or thinking outside the square. Is there anyone who has any alternative ideas?
Avatar f tn I got tested today at an "Out of the Closet Thrift Store" in Hollywood for HIV. I tested negative, and was happy about that. But, when I told my friend I went, she freaked out and told me I should have gone to my doctor! That the stuff there could have been contaminated and it wasn't administered by a nurse or doctor! Now I am kind of worried? I was under the assumption that it was done by someone that had training to read, administer, and council the testing!
Avatar m tn In Miami we do 3 months as being conclusive. Miami also has one of the highest HIV/AIDS prevelence rates in the U.S (may be the highest) so testing would have to be very accurate here and they consider this 3 month test final. 6 months is for the ultra rare cases (already have compromised immune systems, cancer patients, chemo., etc...). Hope this helps some.
1530342 tn?1405020090 Promising trials hinted that circumcision could lower rates of HIV infection, but until now, researchers didn’t fully understand why. Now, in a study published in the journal mBio, scientists say that changes in the population of bacteria living on and around the penis may be partly responsible.
Avatar f tn Likely you have psychosomatic fatigue because you are trying to self-diagnose and don't feel comfy with your guesses since you suspect HIV. However since you have no medical training, your self-diagnosis is going to be wrong. Lymph swell for many reasons (and this swelling may all just be in your head), but people fearing HIV always think it is ARS - everyone posting on this forum thinks they have ARS, but none did in the time I have been here.
Avatar m tn There are three (3) ways to contract HIV 1) UNPROTECTED anal/vaginal sex with an HIV+ partner 2) Sharing drug works with an HIV+ person 3) Mother to unborn child Do you fit into any of these categories? If not, then you had NO RISK. As for the other symptoms you've had since then, I have no idea what those could have been.........or are. I would suggest you see your doctor or a derrmatologist. Have you been checked for STDs? If not, please do so.
Avatar m tn I just want to move on with my life, and I know my chance of getting it if she had it was low, like one in thousands, but I dont want to sound greedy, I really dont want to be that one. God Bless all of You out there that went/are going through HIV and AIDS, thanks so much to everyone who answers.
Avatar m tn Doesn't make me hungry at all so over all I look for information it takes me HIV/AIDS illness. I took a leave for a weak from job to get rid of all tensions. But days which I spent was horrible always fatigued and couldn't enjoy a day also. Pleas don't get mad.
Avatar n tn I had unprotected anal sex where I was the bottom. The top climaxed while in me. He claims to be HIV negative. Even offered to show me his last test result. I had planned on waiting until the 3 month mark to get tested but couldn't live with the not knowing so I was tested at my doctor's office on February 27, 2006. I don't know what kind of test they did, I'm assuming the ELISA test. They drew a vial of blood and sent it to a local hopsital for the test.
Avatar n tn I use to be a fitness freak like you (and very fit), running 10km in 40mins every other day, complimented by weight training. Since the HIV scare I stopped training has been 3 months now. But I felt better once I got back to it recently. So I suggest you ease back into it. It's good to obsess about other things which are more productive, rather than HIV.
1568660 tn?1298360568 I've got oral thrush atm as well as a range of other ARS symptoms and as far as I can read oral thrush only occurs in infants and people with HIV/AIDS.
Avatar f tn The delusion comes from the mistaken belief that one can identify 'signs' of HIV infection (which in reality do not exist), reading misleading information on the Internet which falsely links very common conditions of the body to HIV, and not having adequate medical training to correctly interpret what is going on. Feeding the delusion are the very real symptoms of anxiety, which people also erroneously try to link to HIV.
Avatar m tn She is unhealthy as of today with what looks like AIDS despite she told me she is negative but I can't trust an addicted of course. So long story short I had and am having a lot of symptoms and signs along with a drop in my totale lymphocite count. Only things that rule out hiv is my negative repeated tests..
Avatar m tn The Center for Disease Control (CDC) United States in its testing manual states that an hiv test performed 3months post exposure will conclude ones hiv status. For unidentified reasons in South Africa clinics are sending out a message that hiv window periods can be 3 months or longer.Is there something wrong with the training in this part of the world? or something going on that needs to be addressed?
Avatar m tn 2 Minute Fix for Hip Pain When Squatting I always foam roll after strength training and cardio! I never stretch before any routine. I just do light exercise of each routine before doing the full strength workout. No need to stretch as long as you warm the muscles first. https://youtu.

Avatar f tn Ok so I just looked up the combi pt test it is a test for HIV only “With the Elecsys® HIV combi PT assay the HIV-1 p24 antigen and antibodies to HIV-1 and HIV-2 can be detected simultaneously within one determination This results in improved sensitivity and a shorter diagnostic window compared to anti-HIV assays The assay uses recombinant antigens derived from the env- and pol-region and Reverse transcriptase of HIV-1 (including group O) and HIV-2 to determine HIV-specific antibodies Specific m

Avatar n tn I know over here the county has outreach programs to try to get those who use IV drugs to come in and test, recieve safety training, safe sex training, etc. to try to prevent further outbreaks of HIV. seems like they should try to do more i don't recall if they even address hep c in this program that is a good question though, why don't they routinely screen the population for these blood borne. at least after a time when most people are more vulnerable, sometime or several times as adult.
