About HIV Aids

HIV Aids HIV Aids

hiv aids is the virus that can lead to acquired immunodeficiency syndrome, or AIDS, if not treated. Unlike some other viruses, the human body can’t get rid of HIV completely, even with treatment. So once you get hiv aids, you have it for life. HIV reduces the number of CD 4 cells (T cells) in the body.  Over time, HIV can destroy so many of these cells that the body can’t fight off infections and disease.

These opportunistic infections or cancers take advantage of a very weak immune system and signal that the person has AIDS, the last stage of HIV infection. If taken the right ‘way’, every day, this medicine can dramatically prolong the lives of many people infected with ‘HIV’, keep them healthy, and greatly lower their chance of infecting others. AIDS is the most severe phase of HIV infection. People with AIDS have such badly damaged immune systems that they get an increasing number of severe illnesses, called opportunistic infections.However, there’s good news: by using HIV medicines (called antiviral therapy or ART) consistently, you can prevent HIV from progressing to AIDS.

Art Help HIV Aids

ART helps control the virus so that you can live a ‘longer’, healthier life. It reduces the risk of transmitting HIV to others. People who think they are infected recently,  are at the stage of acute HIV infection. They should seek medical care right away. Starting treatment at this stage can have significant benefits to your health.

During this early period of infection, huge amount of virus is produced in your body. The virus uses CD 4 cells to replicate and destroys them in the process. Because of this, your CD 4 cells can fall rapidly. Eventually your immune response will begin to bring the level of virus in your body back down to a level called a viral set point. Which is a relatively stable level of virus in your body. Detected with standard laboratory tests. If you take ART, you may live with clinical latency for decades and never progress to AIDS because treatment helps keep the virus in check.
