Signs Of Contracting The HIV Virus?
Hello. my father is 40 years old. Never checked into diagnoses and to hospitals that incidentally are quite famous. he said free of HIV. Pas now sick under to the hospital said doctors exposed to the HIV virus. Which is the right one.
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) is a disease that is widely feared by the public. Apart from being not yet found the cure, HIV also has the potential to cause a person to experience a significant decrease in endurance, making it easier to experience severe illnesses, such as recurrent infections, multiorgan failure, and so on.
In people with a history of carrying out risky HIV behaviors, such as free sex offenders, drug users, health workers, users of tattoos or body piercing, children born to HIV-infected mothers, and so on, HIV testing is mandatory. In this way, the possibility of HIV infection can be detected earlier, and treatment can be done more quickly.
There are several factors that can make HIV test results different, as your father experienced, including:
Difference in examination time --- the course of HIV infection may include a window period, a period in which the virus replicates very massively in the body, but has not been able to stimulate enough antibody production so that it cannot be detected through blood tests.
Differences in inspection techniques and the accuracy of the test equipment used
Differences in the competence of operators carrying out HIV tests
Contaminated examination sample
Recent HIV infections (not yet when your father underwent a previous HIV check), and so on
Without examining your father directly, of course we are not authorized to judge which examination results are most appropriate in your father's case. More precisely, you consult the results of the examination directly with the doctor who examined your father. Bring along the results of the previous examination so that the doctor can draw conclusions as to what steps need to be done to your father.
Hope this helps ...
