      HIV and HIV Management

      This category is specifically designed to provide you with information regarding HIV/AIDS, as well as provide you with the tests for diagnosis.

      The human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) is a virus that causes the HIV infection and acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). Unfortunately, a person is unable to get rid of HIV. Once they contract it, they have it for their lifetime. However, being diagnosed with HIV does NOT mean a person will automatically be diagnosed with AIDS. A person is diagnosed with AIDS once their CD4 (glycoprotein found on surface of immune cells) fall below a certain level or they start experiencing
      severe infections. People living with the HIV virus can keep the level of the virus low with proper medication. This will prevent the virus to advancing to AIDS and will reduce transmission of the virus to another person.

      HIV is spread mainly by having sex or sharing needles with someone who has the virus. An HIV-infected individual can transmit the virus through specific bodily fluids such as blood, semen, pre-seminal fluid, rectal fluids, vaginal fluids, and even breast milk.

      There are three stages of symptoms associated with HIV.

      Stage 1: This is referred to as an acute infection, which usually happens within 2-6 weeks after exposure. The initial symptoms include headache diarrhea, nausea and vomiting, fatigue, muscle aches, sore throat, red rash and fever.

      Stage 2: This is referred to as the asymptomatic period, where there are no symptoms. During this time, HIV kills the CD4 T-cells and destroys the immune system. This is also the period when people may not be aware that they are infected and can pass the virus onto others.

      Stage 3 (Final Stage): The CD4 T-Cell number is below 200 and the person is diagnosed with AIDS. Other symptoms associated with HIV/AIDS are consistent fatigue, swollen lymph nodes, fever lasting more than 10 days, night sweats, weight loss, purple spots on skin, shortness of breath, yeast infections in mouth, throat or vagina and easy bruising.

      According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, about 50,000 people get infected with HIV each year. Today, more than 1.2 million people in the U.S. are living with HIV and 12.8% of them are unaware of their infection. That is 1 in 8 people!

      The first step in preventing HIV/AIDS is getting tested. Personalabs encourages everyone to just get tested and practice safe sex. Limiting the number of sexual partners and using condoms frequently are just some ways to practice safe sex. Personalabs offers an initial HIV Screening Test, as well as an HIV by PCR, Recent Exposure test that is 99.9% accurate in detecting the presence of HIV at 28 or more days after infection. HIV testing is affordable and the process is quick and easy. Get peace of mind and purchase your HIV test today!
