HIV people suffers other diseases when it gets to this stage

HIV is one of the most dangerous viruses that often affects human beings. The most debilitating aspect of the illness, or its consequence, is that individuals who live with HIV often become so immunocompromised that they begin experiencing a wide variety of health issues. This is only one of the many upsetting symptoms that come along with the condition. This is a stage that the virus goes through, and if you don't take the illness seriously or find out you are positive extremely late, you may have a greater chance of getting to this stage than someone who takes the disease seriously.

In this post, which is in accordance with a publication on CDC, we are going to have a look at some facts regarding HIV and when a person who is suffering from the virus would become susceptible to a variety of health conditions if treatment was not received. Relax, take your time, and take in some new information as you read this post.

When do HIV Patients Typically Experience Multiple Other Health Problems?

According to studies, persons who are living with HIV and may be completely unconscious of their status will gradually and even occasionally asymptotically progress through the many phases of the virus until they reach the last stage, which is known as AIDS.

The acronym AIDS stands for Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome. AIDS is the final stage of the HIV virus, and it is accompanied by a wide variety of opportunistic infections. This is due to the fact that at this stage, also known as stage 3, the virus will have destroyed all of the cells that make up the immune system. Because your CD4 cell count is now below the threshold of 200 cells per milliliter of blood, your body will no longer be able to fight off some illnesses and infections that are caused by opportunistic pathogens.

Because of the severe damage to the immune system, a person at this point may even struggle to recover despite the onslaught of antiretroviral drugs. This is due to the fact that the immune system has been compromised. Therefore, it is imperative that you get tested for HIV on a regular basis in order to determine your status and learn when you are at a more treatable, early stage of the disease.
