Hello, congratulations, Ilyas Hussein. Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com


Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) / Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) is a world health problem that continues to increase and is growing. HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) is a virus that attacks the human immune system. Decreased immunity cell count in HIV patients will make someone susceptible to an infectious disease, so that it can lead to AIDS. AIDS (Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome) is a collection of symptoms and major clinical signs in HIV patients at risk of opportunistic infections due to a reduced immune system. HIV patients will be easily infected because the body's immune system is so weak that the body fails to fight an infection that causes the disease


Asymptomatic diagnosis of HIV through a three-series strategy for areas with an HIV prevalence of less than 10 percent. Three reagents with different sensitivity, specificity, and antigen preparation are used sequentially in accordance with Minister of Health Decree No. 241/2006 concerning Health Laboratory Service Standards for HIV Examination and Opportunistic Infections. HIV diagnostic tests are performed serologically and virologically. Serological examination uses a rapid diagnostic test (rapid diagnostic test / RDT) or an enzyme immune examination (Enzyme Immuno Assay / EIA) that looks at antibodies or protein portions. While the examination of the virus using the PCR (polymerase chain reaction) method. The examination carried out if you already have symptoms is examination of 3 reagents namely A1, A2, and A3.

If the results are negative and the patient is at risk, recommend a re-examination of at least 3 months, 6 months, and 12 months from the first examination up to 1 year afterwards
If the results are negative and the patient is not at risk, recommend a healthy lifestyle

If from the reagent examination the results cannot be determined then

do a PCR check
If you do not have a PCR facility, do a rapid test (rapid test) in the 3rd, 6th, and 12th months since the first inspection. If up to 1 year still cannot be determined and has no risk factors, it can be stated as a negative result.

Untulk results of examinations and conditions experienced should consult with a doctor especially a doctor of internal medicine so that it can be assessed not only from laboratory tests but also can be seen the physical condition that you experience.


That's the thing we can say. May be useful. Thank you
