HIV

 HIV

Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) causes acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) which is a progressive failure of the immune system, which allows life-threatening opportunistic infections and cancers to thrive in the body. Many people can live with HIV for years before it develops into AIDS, and in some cases, HIV never develops into AIDS at all.

Diagnosis

HIV and AIDS are both chronic conditions that negatively impact the body’s immune system.

Causes

HIV cannot be contracted through physical touch. It is transmitted through sexual contact, pregnancy, breastfeeding, or contracted through the contact of HIV-infected blood.

Treatment

There is currently no cure for HIV nor AIDS, but with certain medications, it is possible to manage the symptoms and slow down the progression of the disease.

Screening

People who are pregnant, newborns, or anybody who may have been exposed to HIV should be screened for the infection.

Symptoms

The symptoms of HIV and AIDS range from rapid weight loss, recurring fever, profuse night sweats, unexplained tiredness, prolonged swelling of the lymph glands in the armpits, groin, or neck, diarrhea that lasts over a week, pneumonia, and sores on the mouth, anus, or genitals.
