Avatar f tn Hey. Straight to the point. Your viral load will continue to climb up, everyday. When you stop taking your meds, it gives the HIV in your body a chance to multiply and it wont ever stop multiplying when you are off of your meds. It multiplies in your blood, in your organs and in your brain. They cant measure the amount of HIV in your organs because it hides there. But your viral load is continuing to go up all the time.
Avatar m tn I'm referring to this latest news about hiv research which is also a retrovirus like hbv: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2016/10/02/hiv-cure-close-after-disease-vanishes-from-blood-of-british-man/ "The new therapy works in two stages. Firstly, a vaccine helps the body recognise the HIV-infected cells so it can clear them out. Secondly, a new drug called Vorinostat activates the dormant T-cells so they can be spotted by the immune system.

Avatar n tn Good news is I'M DONE!!!.. Bad news is, I got my latest labs back today and my WBC and Hemoglobin have tanked again, so I may have to do the procrit. WBC is 2.2 and HGB is 8.3... I am still waiting on my latest viral load to see if it is still undetectable. Another strange thing is that my ALT was normal, but my AST was a little high at 58. I'm hoping that is not a bad sign. I had other levels that were Low, but the WBC and HGB are what concern me most..
645800 tn?1466860955 IN other news while having my acupuncture treatment I got what may be some bad news. As the nurse was removing the needles she noticed that I have several small black spots on my ears. So I am to contact my PC to see about them being checked out as it might be skin cancer.
220090 tn?1379167187 Showed another small improvement. Latest score 13.9. Last one was 14.1. Dr D thinks I might have fatty liver, so back on the low carb diet. Fibroscan is now FDA approved according to the folks at Mt Sinai. I am very happy to see small improvements. It is now 5 years since SVR, if that terminology is still used, and I have improve fibrosis by one full measure from stage 3 - 4 to. 2 - 3. I am striving for a solid stage 2 and I think with a good diet,, I can archive it.
Avatar m tn go test agin to your doctor or gum clinic they do rapid tests in both they dont have policy "no news is good news" for hiv in UK i tested last month in London they give you results for hiv within 40 minutes no news is good news for othe std like syphilis,ganorreha,chlamidia which need up to 2 weeks to come from the lab.
Avatar m tn It is very common for people on drug treatment for HIV to have no detectable virus in the blood. That does not mean they are not infected; they are. If they stop treatment, the virus is then detected in the blood. Whatever your personal situation, I'm sure this news story has no implications for any test results you might have had. I hope this clarifies things for you.
12080135 tn?1453627571 Not really a question, more some good news to share on my latest brain/cervical spine MRI. Compared to the two MRIs in Feb, no new lesions have developed :-) Shows a stable appearance, no gadolinium enhancement (guess that means none active) and in fact some lesions appear less prominent (they had grown, 2 new ones, 7 active last time). Vit D must be helping as won't start Tecfidera until 7th Sept. Whatever it is, I'm feeling in a happy place today.
Avatar f tn Hai...If a person who is undertaking hiv treatment i.e taking Arv drugs can marry a person with hiv negative....By using arv drugs, is hiv virus become non detectable or non transmissible?? If it is not detectable, participating in the sex have the chance of transmission??
Avatar f tn Hesitation of stopping a drug like Tenefovir is related to fear for a flare. If your HBsAg is cleared to begin with, the flare concern may be much less or nonexistent. Your case is worth being followed because usually acute HBV is not treated with antiviral drugs but is left to the 90% clearing rate by one's own immune system.
Avatar m tn Great news Adam. I am really looking forward to this working for you. SVR without interferon means a lot of people that couldn't tolerate tx before will have a chance. We are all rooting for you. Thanks for being one of the lab rats!
Avatar f tn That is good news. I did not know she was even close to being discharged. That is wonderful. Thank God for this. I pray she continues to improve. I hope Rose is remembering to take good care of herself, too. She is probably focusing everything on her mom. I remember when my mom was sick I was not able to eat. Thanks for the up-date.

Avatar f tn She has been seeing a Dr but like I said, third world coumtry, they do not have some of the drugs and some of the Drs dont really know the latest treatment options. I need to find out what treatment someone in a First world country with symptoms and CD4 levels like hers would be receiving.
