AIDS, or acquired immunodeficiency syndrome, is a serious immune-system disease that is caused by the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). HIV is a lentivirus that progressively targets and kills the immune system, leaving the individual prone to a range of other infections and certain cancers that may eventually become fatal. AIDS can be passed on during pregnancy, childbirth, or nursing through sexual contact, injectable drug use or needle sharing, contact with contaminated blood, or from mother to child during pregnancy, breastfeeding, or childbirth.
Individuals with AIDS experience a degradation of the immune system and a reduction in CD4+ T cells, which worsens the symptoms of HIV. These symptoms include diarrhoea lasting more than a week, dry coughing, memory loss, depression, neurological diseases, pneumonia, extensive, inexplicable fatigue, unexplained weight loss, recurrent fever, or excessive night sweats, blotches of red, brown, pink, or purple on or under the skin or within the mouth, nose, or eyelids, and swollen lymph nodes in the armpits, groin, or neck. However, most people with HIV do not develop late-stage HIV if detected early, and once they begin treatment, they can live longer and better lives.
HIV is spread through engaging in unprotected sexual activity, sharing contaminated injectable drugs (syringes and needles), transfusions of blood, or during pregnancy, delivery, or nursing. To reduce the risk of HIV, it is crucial to wear a condom correctly for every sexual activity involving your penis, use a male condom. Never share needles when taking drugs, get tested and treated for other STDs, avoid getting drunk or high, and ask your healthcare practitioner if you should take pre-exposure prophylaxis if you are at substantial risk of HIV exposure. At Curodoc, our healthcare professionals work with our patients to educate them about preventive measures and offer counseling services to individuals and families affected by HIV/AIDS.
HIV is detected using either a blood or spit test. If your test results are negative, no additional testing is necessary if you have not had any exposure in the three months before testing with any test or have yet to have probable exposure within the period for a blood sample test. If you had a probable exposure within three months of testing, you should retest to confirm the negative result. If your test results are positive, the lab may conduct further tests to confirm the finding.
In conclusion, Curodoc is dedicated to providing advanced Care at home to individuals with HIV/AIDS. Our team of healthcare professionals works tirelessly to ensure that our patients receive the best care possible in the comfort of their.
