Common Questions and Answers about Hiv aids treatment

hiv

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 m tn Today, HIV should not progress to AIDS with treatment. You have neither so it does not concern you.
Avatar f tn what did you mean not anymore ? because i did find some info that was like 2010 and said that if you take the treatment right you wont get aids. how far before did you mean ? years ? months ?
Avatar m tn There is a window period were test may not pick up the virus, this is up to 13 weeks. In terms of HIV leading to Aids, this is on average without treatment is 7 to 10 years.
Avatar f tn Can you Get HHV8 and not get HIV/AIDS?. Is it possible to skip HIV and get AIDS directly? Would HHV-8 be what caused all my symptoms (fever/neck ach/night sweats/nightmares/nausea/tiredness? If I was coinfected with HHV-8, HIV would it take longer than 8 weeks to show on elisa test? Please help need more answers. The Dermatolgist had a wait and see attitude with my questions.

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 f tn re not feeling well then go see the doctor for proper diagnosis and treatment. But there is 100% no way you have AIDS because you were never exposed to HIV.
1530342 tn?1405016490 A vaccine is FAR more likely than a cure. For MOST viral infections, there is no cure, and with HIV, a retrovrius, it is unlikely. We still don't have a cure for the common cold, and influenza. A cure would be wonderful, but just think of all the other diseases out there with no cure, only treatments. The thing to be thankful for is how far we've come in the treatment for HIV/AIDS. MANY people are living completely normal life spans...

Avatar f tn The average onset of AIDS after exposure to HIV is 10 years. A person infected with HIV who never received any treatment would start getting very, very sick at that time. Without any treatment after 15 years, a person would have died. Several volunteers on other forums who are HIV positive themselves and are receiving ongoing treatment have confirmed that, once they tested positive for HIV, they would always test positive (similar to mono).
Avatar n tn My dr told me that there was a guy from Kenya who was hiv positive for 5 years but tested negative.How can I be sure that I dont have the virus.Im very worried....that I might progress to the aids stage and die without anyone knowing what of because of the gestation period.I had sex with a hooker 7 months ago but i have been sick ever since.
Avatar n tn ve been asked this before, but is it possible that in a person with Aids or a person with an advanced stage of Aids would stop making hiv antibodies? Do people with hiv show hiv antibodies for the rest of there life, even in the terminal stage of aids? And is it possible that someone could catch the hiv virus and in 3 years develop aids in an advanced stage if that person where unaware that they where hiv possitive and where not receiving treatment for hiv?
Avatar m tn Majority of HIV-infected people without treatment would die from AIDS in relatively short time interval (5-10 years). But only minority of HCV-infected people (probably, 20%) would die without theatment from HCV-related complications during their lifetime. Thus, HCV-infected people may remain infective during decades of all their lifetime.
Avatar m tn He mentioned a prophylaxis and antibiotics. I was worried about HIV and thought that this prophylaxis was for aids. He gave me a shot and a 10 day supply of doxicycline (antibiotic). After, I realized that this was for the prevention of an STD. I have searched the internet and have not found anything about STD prophylaxis. I am now concerned/wondering what Shot I was given. Has anybody heard of this type of treatment??
Avatar m tn Once someone has AIDS they will be under treatment and they aren't given antibody tests. ZERO for a false negative test after two years being infected. PCR tests are not approved for diagnosing HIV.

20615327 tn?1504407706 I am a clinic laboratory staff, sometimes stabbed by scissors which is contaminated with blood, and sometimes blood splashed into the eyes too, I want to ask if the blood is from the AIDS patients, if I don't do any treatment, will it be contagious?
