Hiv positive nutrition

Common Questions and Answers about Hiv positive nutrition


98010 tn?1305903335 I have a niece who is living with a friend that just found out he is HIV positive. What can she do to help her friend through this difficult journey? What precautions should she be taking for herself (just roommates, nothing intimate)? Thank you for your help.
Avatar m tn My partners are all HIV positive. I don't have sex with negative people. BY MY CHOICE.
Avatar m tn In addition, this person is a smoker, does not have proper nutrition, or take good general care of herself. She tested for HIV and was negative. My question: If the thrush was related to possible HIV infection (suppressed immune system reason being), would the HIV need to be at a point for testing where it would show up or could it still be too early to show? In short, could thrush only occur from HIV if the HIV infection had occurred some time prior?
Avatar m tn after 15 days without eat nothing but taking some antibiotic due to an infection in my eye described by the doctor as a bacteria i went to a clinic to make my regulary HIV test I take every year, just as a rutinary test due that I never had any bad symptoms. But a get a reactive elisa test and with the same blood they made a western blot test. I heard that a western blood test could be a false positive due to other viral diseas or a subclinical infection.
Avatar n tn If you don't mind me asking, how long did you take mona vie? I have a good friend and her brother is HIV positive. I know with monavie, it builds your red & white blood count and it seems to help from any cellular damage. I realize that a person with HIV already has cellular damage, but if we could protect the good cells, maybe, just maybe there could be a positive outcome of long term use of monavie. It isn't a miracle drug, nor do they claim to cure anything, but it is good nutrition.
Avatar n tn can these meds give a false negative or a false positive? And lastly can any medicines or dietary supplements make you test false positive or negative? Because i was taking some weight gainers(optimum nutrition pro complex gainer,cytosport cytogainer) and whey protein(optimum nutrition why protein) while working out,i am still taking them... and i got tested negative while taking all these things 3 months back....
Avatar f tn So I decided to post this in order to provide hope and reassurance to those who have found themselves preoccupied with HIV due to a list of unrelenting symptoms during that anxiety-provoking window period. My story started following a brief unprotected sexual encounter. 3 weeks later I came down with a viral illness which hit me like a tonne of bricks - I had honestly never experienced illness like it before and was absolutely 1 million percent convinced I had contracted HIV.
Avatar m tn I haven't had any other symptoms other than flank and lower back pain so far, I also took a 2 and 3 week HIV test negative also 4 week ora quick hiv test negative. What are my chances?
Avatar n tn As for the doctor's visits, no he hasn't went with her, but we just found on 4 days ago (the same day she did) that she was HIV positive. She also tested positive for Herpes---unsure of any precautions to take there as well, if any. I've been doing my best to study up on HIV and it's risk. I am actually a very well educated person (when it comes to books), but I've just never had to encounter a situation like this, I really don't mean to come off as a heart-less monster.
Avatar m tn But if you remain concerned, I would advise you to have an HIV test. The chance of a false positive result is very, very low, and even then is a problem only with the rapid tests, not the lab-based standard HIV antibody tests. Fear of such a result is not a valid reason to avoid testing; the far more likely outcome of testing would be a negative result that would go a long way in resolving your fear of having HIV. (And as I said, I'm not at all convinced you have Lyme disease anyway.
Avatar m tn Hi Dr Handsfield, 14 months ago (I was just turned 19 at the time) I had sex with a white (non-drug using) girl who was 16 years old (16 is the age of consent in Canada) FOUR different occasions. Lots of oral sex (me receiving) and unprotected intercourse which on each occasion wasn't too long but not too short either. I'm almost 100% I had no cuts and 100% did not have any sores or any STDs (this was my FIRST ever time having unprotected sex) or signs of any STDs. I am circumsized.
Avatar n tn Johnson; "At that time [I was diagnosed HIV positive], we had only one [drug]: AZT," he said. "Now we have 22. The reason I am doing well is because of the drugs. I am following my doctor's program, and I am making sure I get exercise and a proper diet," he continued. "It's been mind over matter, too. I always felt I was going to beat HIV. I had to put that in my mind to live and breathe that every day.
Avatar m tn i got my results and tested negative for aids, hiv, syphilis but it came back positive for hsv 2/ herpes. my question is 3 days after sex with someone new too soon for antibodies to show up in my blood stream to test positive? leading me to believe that i had it before i had sex with this recent girl (which was a one time thing) i haven't seen any symptoms, i have a strong immune system, no sores no iching puss and all that rah rah.
1097960 tn?1257440975 I DO understand that your OCD thinking will just NOT let it go, which is why you need help. Educating yourself about HIV was a very positive step for you to take, but with your OCD, it seems that you are only adding fuel to the fire. Instead of reassuring you, this book is adding yet MORE to your list of are now asking about "proteins, envelopes, the way to target cells, fragile particles etc.

Avatar n tn Oral, even with a known HIV positive person, is never high risk. In fact, the risk of contracting HIV from giving a blowjob to a known HIV positive person is only 1 in 10,000. It's negligible for cunnilingus. Relax.
101028 tn?1419606604 However, such testing may be useful for individuals who are unsure of their status and at high risk for the disease, including those with multiple sex partners, those who are HIV-positive, and gay and bisexual men.
Avatar n tn i have frequent urination and occasionly (very rarely) my urethra stings when i am finished peeing. im almost positive that it is a bacterial infection. it has spread to my anus has affected my digestive system. my feces are soft. my lymp glands are occasionally swollen by my waist, and occasionally on my throat. i think the infection spread to my mouth and sometimes i have bad breath and cuts that appear in my mouth.
Avatar n tn It is not possible to have HIV and have positive tests delayed 10 months. Do not have any more HIV tests. 2) See above. The "family symptoms" probably start with your child, not you. 3) Yes, HIV can cause geographic tongue. So do hundreds of other viruses, allergies, and minor changes in diet, nutrition, etc. Your tests prove that HIV isn't the cause. Please do your best to accept the scientific evidence once and for all.
Avatar n tn Hi My daughter of 13 weeks (adopted from Ethiopia) has been diagnosed with ESBL resistant salmonella concord (hope I have said it right). Also with MRSA positive swabs in her nose and throat. I am using cream for her nose. Now I don't know if I am posting this in the right place but...... what I wanted to know is ...... both of these are resistant to antibiotics......
Avatar f tn This form of viral hepatitis may lead to cirrhosis, or scarring, of the liver. Coinfection of hepatitis C in patients who are HIV positive is common; about one quarter of patients infected with HIV are infected with hepatitis C. The majority of these patients, 50 to 90 percent, were infected through injection drug use. Hepatitis C ranks with alcohol abuse as the most common cause of chronic liver disease and leads to about 1,000 liver transplants yearly in the U.S. http://engineeringevil.
Avatar m tn had some cold/flu like symptoms two weeks later, but i get that the weather started changing too, and i wasn't really getting the rest and nutrition i needed during that week. also, i've been working in a studio environment that's terrible for health. anyway, i tested negative last week at 10 weeks with the orasure rapid test at a clinic. they told me that i was still in the window period, so i should come back in early january. does anyone test positive after 9-10 weeks?
Avatar n tn Neither zyrtec nor amphetamines would keep your test from being positive (or delay a positve result) if you had acquired HIV (which you did not). As far as the varying recomendations, the difference in 98%, 99%, "most" and "all" are semantic. We get asked the same questions repeatedly, sometimes on the same day. Sometimes the words come out a little differently. Don't get hung up by it.
Avatar m tn as long as the head of the penis was covered, you can assume protection against HIV was complete. HIV has never been reported to have been transmitted by cunnilingus, either genital to oral or vice versa, so that's not really a concern. I can't say such contact could never transmit the virus, but if there is a risk, it is obvious miniscuel. Also, it is unlikely your partners were infected.

931217 tn?1283484935 Diet is not the only reason for this, but it does not follow that eating raw meat is a positive factor. Most pet animals are not eating raw diets now and live long anyway. Their safer, indoor lives while eating consistent professionally designed commercial diets are one likely reason. That, and better health care than in decades past is another.
Avatar m tn Hepatitis c positive and HIV/AIDSin children and adult, What are the available management options and which is the best that is acceptable practise?
Avatar f tn Great point in your last post. how one acquires HCV, HIV, cancer etc is irrelavent. Why do so many want to blame the victim? Often the first thing I hear people ask when they hear someone was diagnosed with lung cancer is '"Did he or she smoke?" Is it more palatable if they did? Did they deserve it? NO. I recall as a resident in radiology hearing a CT tech complain about having to do an extra study because of some "AIDS patient".
Avatar m tn com RNA PCR tests are most frequently used for screening blood donations and donor organs for HIV, while DNA PCR tests are used for testing newborn babies born to HIV positive mothers. Both types of test can be used to measure the amount of virus that is present within a person's body (when they will usually be referred to as 'viral load' tests).
