HIV / human immunodeficiency virus is a virus that attacks the human immune system. AIDS / acquired immunodeficiency syndrome is a condition / collection of symptoms due to decreased immunity caused by HIV infection associated with other germ infections or secondary malignancies or certain neurological disorders. Transmission of HIV is through:
Sexual relations with people with HIV / AIDS Blood such as transfusions, tissue transplants, syringes From mother to fetus / baby during pregnancy, childbirth, or through breast milk The initial symptoms of HIV infection are usually non-specific, will be similar to infection with other germs, such as fever, headache, sore throat, redness on the skin, and so on. Based on clinical symptoms HIV / AIDS is divided into 4 stages, namely:
Stage 1. Usually asymptomatic, enlargement of lymph nodes throughout the body Stage 2. Slight weight loss, skin abnormalities, shingles infection, recurring cold cough Stage 3. Real weight loss for no apparent reason, diarrhea without cause clear> 1 month, continuous fever> 1 month, fungus appears in the mouth, pulmonary tuberculosis, anemia, bone pain, brain infection, etc. Stage 4 (severe). Thin body looks like only bone, recurrent pneumonia, brain disorders due to toxoplasma infection, fungal infections in all parts of the body including the gastrointestinal tract and respiratory infections, tuberculosis infections outside the lungs (bones, skin, gastrointestinal tract, brain, etc.), Kaposi's sarcoma ( typical tumors in people with HIV / AIDS) Until now there was indeed no treatment to cure HIV / AIDS. Antiretroviral therapy (ARV) given aims to reduce the amount of virus, prevent complications, reduce transmission, and reduce mortality. This therapy uses a combination of 3 kinds of drugs that are tailored to the patient's condition. ARVs must be taken regularly and must not be broken up. ARVs have various side effects such as nausea, decreased appetite, increased blood cholesterol, redness of the skin, decreased blood cells, and so on. Patients are also usually given many other drugs to reduce the symptoms experienced. Therefore, sometimes patients are lazy and tired of taking these drugs. However, adherence to treatment is really needed in people with HIV / AIDS, the family really has a role to supervise and encourage sufferers to always obey taking medication.
Patients as much as possible should consume foods with balanced nutrition, if possible, high in calories and high in protein. There are no specific food restrictions for sufferers. Family support is certainly needed by people with HIV / AIDS. If the patient already has a partner and children, they should also be screened for HIV. Until now early detection and early administration of ARVs provide a better quality of life for sufferers. Life expectancy of patients varies greatly depending on the stage at which they get treatment, medication adherence, the presence of other diseases that accompany, and so on. Deaths in people with HIV / AIDS are usually caused by secondary infections that occur. Be vigilant if sufferers experience shortness, slurred speech or difficult to wake up, seizures, high fever, loose stools to the limp body, you should immediately take it to the doctor and do not forget to always tell the medical personnel who handle that the patient has HIV / AIDS and any type of medication which is being consumed.
Thus the explanation from me, may be useful.
