Common Questions and Answers about Who hiv treatment guidelines


Avatar m tn AASLD is an organization of liver disease specialists who publish annual treatment guidelines. Google AASLD 2009 hepatitis C treatment guidelines to find a copy. The mouth sores are a sign that the main drug, interferon, is reducing his white blood cell level. There are medications to counteract that but they are very very expensive and that may have had a role in their decision.
Avatar m tn Treatment is recommended for adults with CHB who do not have clinical evidence of cirrhosis (or based on APRI score ≤2 in adults), but are aged more than 30 years (in particular), and have persistently abnormal ALT levels and evidence of highlevel HBV replication (HBV DNA >20 000 IU/mL), regardless of HBeAg status.
Avatar m tn I am among those who started treatment right away after i diagnosed with the disease Coz of my fibroscan & high hbvdna result plus Hbeag negative.
Avatar m tn My exposure was brief vaginal penetration with female who hiv-status is unknown to me. When I say brief, I really mean brief. Definitely under 5 second penetration, I would say 1-2 second max.
Avatar m tn Researchers have tried various drugs on people who do no need treatment (according to the latest guidelines) and discovered that the drugs do not help at all. That is why the latest guidelines recommend "no treatment" in many cases.
Avatar f tn In the UK the following statement applies BASHH/EAGA statement on HIV window period November 2014 HIV testing using the latest (fourth generation) tests is recommended in the BHIVA / BASHH / BIS UK guidelines for HIV testing (2008). These assays test for HIV antibodies and p24 antigen simultaneously.
Avatar f tn is there anyone who can tell us more about the new ATA guidelines ? according to their research, they are saying the standard treatment for hypo thyroid should be synthroid drugs, that they found none of the others work... well I was on synthroid for two years, it was not converting to t3... I felt horrible... then I asked my Dr. to put me on armour, and WOW it was like somebody turned on a light switch.. my thyroid panel levels all normal, feel like a million bucks....
Avatar m tn I went for an HIV test 2 days after my risk, i was wondering if the rapid HIV test i took is accurate because my results came back negative or i should take the EIA test?
Avatar n tn However, if he turns out to be HIV positive, you should visit a local provider who understands HIV prevention and is experienced with PEP, and who knows local guidelines, then follow his or her advice. If your partner says he is HIV negative (and has been tested fairly recently), I see no need for PEP. If you never hear back from your partner, PEP might be warranted -- but again, the decision should be made with a provider on the scene, not a distant forum like this one.
Avatar f tn I teach HIV education to doctors. MOVE ON.
Avatar f tn The CDC keeps giving research money to the same Lyme deniers over and over, but generally will not fund any study that looks to question the official positions on Lyme. The big medical journals also refuse to publish anything that questions or contradicts the official positions. (Some of the same people who are on the IDSA Lyme committee are also on these editorial boards). The CD57 is controversial because it was proposed as a useful tool in the diagnosis and treatment of Lyme Disease by Dr.
Avatar n tn It was most likely a combo test since that is the standard test given in Canada (I live in Canada) All blood tests in Canada are 4th gen and only rapid tests are 3rd gen. I confirmed this with an HIV clinic. Remote areas might not use the 4th gen but in Ontario I would definitely say it was a 4th gen. Your results are conclusive. 12 months is only if you are using antibody only testing. I highly suspect you had a duo/combo test.
Avatar n tn I can tell you that having had even limited unprotected anal intercourse with a person on unknown HIV status, you did place yourself at risk for acquiring HIV. Unprotected anal intercourse is the riskiest of sexual activities. However, as the "top", you were at lesser risk than your partner. That the insertion was brief also bodes well for you. Now that you are on PEP, that does extend the testing time to a final, conclusive result.
Avatar m tn Follow the guidelines of this forum. You're no different than anyone else. "This is a forum for individuals who are HIV positive or have AIDS to connect and support each other." It not for people that are negative to come into this forum. If you don't agree with the guidelines then go to another forum. These guidelines where put in place for a reason.
Avatar f tn Patients attending for HIV testing who identify a specific risk occurring more that 4 weeks previously, should not be made to wait 3 months (12 weeks) before HIV testing. They should be offered a 4th generation laboratory HIV test and advised that a negative result at 4 weeks post exposure is very reassuring/highly likely to exclude HIV infection. An additional HIV test should be offered to all persons at 3 months (12 weeks) to definitively exclude HIV infection.
Avatar m tn How bad does herpes affect hiv treatment? Does herpes complicate hiv treatment a lot? Does this affect life expectancy?
Avatar m tn These guidelines are not finite and have the option to change. For example, last week WHO now says anyone diagnosised with HIV should go on treatment, rather than waiting for the CD4 count to drop. Will this be the future of HBV, if they find NUC's greatly reduce fibrosis or HCC long term, especially if treating before fibrosis or cirrhosis sets in?
Avatar m tn As opposed to European (EASL) 2012, Asian-Pacific (APASL) 2012, American (AASLD) 2009, and World Health Organisation (WHO) 2015 major guidelines for the treatment of chronic Hepatitis B, the following 3 guidelines are more strict on the conditions leading to necessity of treatment for Hepatitis B, HBeAg negative carriers: Canadian 2009, Japanese (JSH) 2013, and UK/British (NICE) 2013 guidelines are more "strict" when it comes to treatment of negative HBsAg patients, especially in the
907968 tn?1292622204 For some insight, there are AAH/AAC guidelines for CAD treatment. If medication cannot successfully treat symptoms, then a stent implant. If a stent implant is not appropriate such as occlusion too long, location prohibits, etc. then CABG. If an occlusion is less than 70% do not stent, etc....usually that degree of occlusion presents no problems. As the good Doctor from the Cleveland Clinc stated treatment (medication, stents, CABG) only treats the symoptoms not the disease.
Avatar m tn Hopefully this thread of mine won't get removed too. Anyways... here it goes and I hope it helps.

Avatar m tn Isn’t in a mutually monogamous relationship with a partner who recently tested HIV-negative, and is a gay or bisexual man who has had anal sex without using a condom or been diagnosed with an STD in the past 6 months, or a heterosexual man or woman who does not regularly use condoms during sex with partners of unknown HIV status who are at substantial risk of HIV infection (for example, people who inject drugs or women who have bisexual male partners).
Avatar m tn s interesting though, one of the specialists who told me about TDF almost 2 years ago (I thought he was nuts to recommend treatment for me) said HBV is somewhat like HIV, in that they used to treat HIV if only their CD4 (I think I got this right) fell below a certain number. He said, now there is so much benefit to antivirals that most HIV specialists will advise medication from the get go.
Avatar m tn org/posts/HIV---International/What-is-the-truth/show/1483114#post_6742642 The doctors at freedomhealth who also post on here categoricaly state 6 week hiv duo is conclusive, but you do not, i would like to know who you think is right and who is wrong and why, would be nice to see a discussion between you and them.
648017 tn?1247999424 m a medical student and my school is insisting that if we get needle stuck by someone who is hiv positive or of unknown hiv status we should get the prophylatic treatment. which is very expensive as in $2000. i think i read on here that you said no one has gotten hiv from a needle stick. i also know that the only way to get hiv is from unprotected vaginal/anal sex or sharing iv needles for drug use. are the doctors at my school just trying to cover their butts?
