Hiv aids treatment

Common Questions and Answers about Hiv aids treatment


Avatar m tn Today, HIV should not progress to AIDS with treatment. You have neither so it does not concern you.
Avatar m tn if today you are negative you dont have hiv. after 12 weeks you are ok. stress can give you many symptoms. or maybe you just have ebv. test for ebv igm and igg. and cbc with differential i hope you will feel better. i had all your symptoms and i had nothing.
Avatar m tn HIV can be transmitted due to sharing needles, this is because the blood interact. Unfortunately, there is no cure for HIV (note that HIV isn't the same as AIDS) but treatment for this virus is really advanced. There are medications that permit people live a completely normal life with HIV without developing AIDS. I hope everything is ok, post your results. Personally, I think you didn't involve in high risk. This virus is very fragile and die easily at normal temperature.
Avatar n tn For instance, if indeed she did have HIV, is she on treatment and if so, how has her response to treatment. (Treatment makes transmission less likely). Your own risk from the exposure you describe is low. A persons having a single episode of unprotected intercourse with an infected partner has a bout a 1 in 1000 chance of getting infection. In addition, you used a condom and condoms work. Your chances of having been infected are low.
Avatar n tn And the thing that freaks me out the most is that i have a lot of symptoms that could be related to hiv/aids. I have low wbc count. I also a high level of protein in my blood too. I feel like i am at a lost. Every doctor ive been to tells me not to worry, but how am i not suppose to when i have all these signs in my blood work pointing to hiv?
Avatar m tn t know how to explain them in English. My question to you is... is this symptomatic of HIV/AIDs or some type of other sexual disease? As you can imagine I am very freaked out over it. Thanks.
229411 tn?1189759425 Is there an AVERAGE a person with HIV who does not know they have the disease and has not sought treatment live? Or rather, how long can they go without getting so sick they end up going to a hospital and then find out they have HIV? Do you think after 7 years a person would show any signs? A non-healthy person who eats bad, smokes and drinks a lot and doesnt excersise. So they are not in top shape to begin with.
Avatar m tn Basic Overview & Information on AIDS & HIV AIDS - acquired immunodeficiency syndrome - was first reported in the United States in 1981 and has since become a major worldwide epidemic. AIDS is caused by the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). By killing or damaging cells of the body's immune system, HIV progressively destroys the body's ability to fight infections and certain cancers.
Avatar f tn When working in the medical field and dealing with patients' that have HIV and AIDS why would information of this kind be more sensitive than other types of health conditions? With this in mind what would the social, legal, and ethical ramification of improper information disclosure of sensitive topics like this be for a medical practice or facility? I am also having a hard time understand ICD-9-CM codes. I understand that a general medical examination is V70.
Avatar m tn Hello! How long would HIV become AIDS for a person without treatment? I am male. I did HIV test before, it is negative. I have unprotected sex with my girlfriend. I do not know her status. But I feel embarrassed to ask her to do test and I think it is kind of unnecessary. If I do HIV test once a year, is it too late?
Avatar f tn There are no NATURAL TREATMENTS FOR AIDS.
Avatar n tn Some people on this forum have used Doxil and Avastin as part of their 2d line treatment. If Nodoxa is same as Doxil talk to your oncologist about his view on adding Avastin to it. I am not sure if Nodoxa has been tested in a combination chemo setting.
Avatar m tn You don't have to have treatment . My liver enzymes are always fine, BUT there is NEW EASIER TREATMENT , that doesn't require all the needles & daily treatment. The problem is you don't want to wake up needing a liver transplant, people still pass away from this disease just like Aids. Obviously you should get treatment even if your in " remission". Good Luck! BTW I've had it for close to 10 yrs. enzymes ALWAYS good I'm lucky.
936016 tn?1332769204 Aids medication linked to dementia Researchers at the University of California say they have found a link between antiretroviral medication used to treat patients with HIV and brain impairments such as dementia. Data collected from HIV negative people, HIV positive people and AIDS patients between 1990 and 1995, when antiretroviral treatment was unavailable, was compared with data from different people in the same groups collected between 2000 and 2007 when the medications were available.
Avatar f tn really no reason to suspect you have hiv because you had genital warts. you also have 4 hiv tests evidently that are negative so why think hiv?
Avatar m tn If you have been diagnosed with the HIV virus you will always show up positive on a test.The immune system will never stop producing antibodies.
Avatar m tn How did he know that he got HIV? Did he get the HIV test after he found out she died of AIDS? Did he put his wife at risk of HIV?
Avatar m tn Do those odds apply as she was a high class Turkish escort? 3. Are my symptoms typical of ARS and early HIV infection? 4. Can HIV turn into AIDS within a matter of months as I seem to have re developed this throat irritation again or is it normal to have this throat irritation throughout an HIV infection even before it develops into full blown aids? 5. What are the chances I have infected my wife in the 3 unprotected encounters I've had with her? 6.
Avatar n tn I guess this is a question about feeling angry living with HIV/ AIDS. My boyfriend and I broke up 2 weeks ago. He is HIV+ and is on meds. I didnt want to break up with him as he is a great guy and I love him very much. I would go back to him ( in a second ! lol!) if we could find some ways of fixing our problems. The major problem of our relationship was his anger.
Avatar n tn I would check an HIV/AIDS support forum. This here's for HCV folk. Please excuse me if you do have HCV, just wasn't sure by the sounds of your post. But as was mentioned above, candida (yeast) is the cause of oral thrush most...all?... of the time, so maybe you should check that out. Good luck finding your answers!

Avatar f tn Dear Vance,teak,howardh,nursegirl and all the experts of the forum few days ago i was having a normal discussion over the HIV topic with few of the medical representatives and they were saying that now a days medical science is so advance that a cure for hiv and AIDS is there but medicine giants are not issuing it out just because a huge amount of money they have invested in treatment of HIV and AIDS so they are restricted to reveal it for the public interest whereas few were saying that cure o
Avatar f tn I'll add that experts no longer really disinguish AIDS from non-AIDS HIV infections. The effectiveness of treatment has made the distinction pretty much irrelevant. It's all just HIV/AIDS.
Avatar n tn my partner, who was diagnosed HIV+ in february 11th was adviced to take an HIV antibodies test precisely because he had a swollen lymph node in his neck, exactly like LIZZIE LOU describes about her/her son. Very big, like a golf ball, noticeable just by looking and it came out a couple of weeks after having unprotected sex with another person in October... the "ball" was present and didn't show any sign of change across the months of November, december, January and february.
Avatar m tn I'm now scared that I have HIV/AIDS. I have this weird white patch on my tongue, a cough, my neck(under my jaw) hurts, and I'm convinced I either have AIDS or oral cancer. It's all I think about. I keep telling myself there's no way I could have either of them. I don't smoke, chew tobacco, and I never technically had sex. I can't stop thinking about. O tell myself that my mind is creating the pain my neck, but that doesn't explain the white patches/bumps on my tongue.
