after 4 months I did CMIA test.. it is negative....but I am suffering from stomach for last one month, feeling nasuated,no taste in food and the lymph node of my elbow is slightly enlarged. is this the indication of seroconversion??
I recently done blood test for CD4 and CD8 count
CD4 is 525 and CD8 is 360.
my question is that antibodies are detected by 4 months or not??
do I have to retest on 6 months or one year??
Please answer me
And, by the way, you don't need anymore HIV testing....you're conclusively negative.
There are no "AIDS" tests. AIDS is a progression of HIV, some infected people develop it (diagnosed by a deterioration of the immune system, specifically a very low T-cell count) and some infected people never do.
If you had an exposure and needed testing, you test for HIV.
Somebody is said to be suffering from AIDS when HIV virus stereo converts..,.
So there are various tests that are available to test for HIV virus..
Like the anti - body...It looks for the antibodies that the human bodies produce to fight the HIV virus(so essentially it detects that ur hiv status (AIDS status).
So the anti body test done after 3 months post exposure,is conclusive..your even less medical knowledge then me is making you confused and worried...if you want further help ...messege me your number ...i will keep it confidential...and we can talk and sort it out on phone...dont worry bro...you are fine..
m frm kolkata....ya from pathlabs....
actually myself was related with same activities from 6 to 7 yrs....so anxious about AIDS.....CAN u specify which test detect AIDS?? I think normal antibody tests dont detect aids...donno..please specify
and trust me ur tests are conclusive..
Its all mind game.....u are too worried....anxiety has very similar symptoms related to hiv....so dont worry...which city are u from ?
goldy bhai..aids is not a virus....its a disease....the visrus is HIV ...the presence of which is called AIDS....aslthough the hiv virus doesnt lead to aids spontaneously....
i am also from india....from where u got ur cmia test....dr ..lal pathlabs ??stay in touch
hello...one more question please answer me
normal antibody test are to detects HIV, but is there any test which detect AIDS??
actually I have read Aids can not be detected by normal antibody test...so I asked you....
Thanks..I was anxious for that
ya ..I believe..but do CMIA test or other rapid test such as tri dot detects all the subtypes of HIV?? or some
You don't have HIV, believe your test.
my IGg vaule is 1440
IGm value is 126
IGa value is 357..

I am recently diagonsed with pharangytis....am freaking out.. Please tell me 6 months test is necessary or not
yes..amt91..bro...rightly said..trying to trust but...anxiety killing me...and moreover I have recently diagonsed with Pharangyties....I am freaking out....please tell me...If I will have to test after 6 months or not...
Reread what you have already been advised.
thank u vance2335...then is it conclusive after 3 months..do I not have to retest at 6 months?? I have irritation on my throat also..I am a regular smoker though, ..and some pimple like rash exists in my right wrist, and left back side...I just dont know what it is
If you had a disorder you would know because you would be under Dr care
ok..thanks....but in some websites I also saw that, some time antibody test takes 6 months to be positive...what is such cases?? immune disorder?? how can I sure that I have a immune disorder or not??
Do not waste your money on PCR (it is far more expensive test than a simple AB test). You were told, your three months CMIA test is conclusive, further supported by WB, you do not have HIV
hi..please answer my question
Thanks..Diver..for your answer
but here some doctors and reputed labs are constantly saying DNA PCR is most sensitive test to detect HIV 1 before seroconverson occures..and myself also found that from websites...ya it is not FDA approved...
does it detects all the subtypes
and the other test which I took such as WB, CMIA and Tridot detects all the subtypes or not
1. DNA PCR is not a screening test for HIV
3. Not related to HIV necessarily
5. No, not due to HIV
Your antibody tests done after 3 months are conclusive, you do not have HIV. Ignore any symptom if you have a conclusive test report in hand, a blood test rules out any possibility of the infection completely
