Does A Medical Check Up Include HIV Testing?
Does it include HIV test in it?
Medical check-up is a general medical examination that is usually performed by people in good health. Medical check-ups include basic physical examinations done generally by general practitioners. Now for the medical check-up itself there are various choices. It all depends on the wishes of the patient and the needs of the patient (for example an office request or to apply for work).
Types of investigations are very diverse ranging from basic laboratories, chest x-rays, heart records, drug checks, stool analysis, and so on. Blood tests for HIV testing can also be done if the patient wants or there is a mandatory request from the employer agency to carry out the examination. The most commonly performed HIV test is an antibody test against HIV (can be combined with HIV p24 antigen). Normally antibody levels increase at 4-6 weeks (mostly 3 months) after exposure. Exposure or actions that are at risk of contracting HIV are sexual relations with sufferers, exchanging needles with sufferers, unsafe blood transfusions that are contaminated with HIV, transmission from mother to child.
Thus the explanation from me, may be useful.
