About Symptoms of HIV
What is HIV/AIDS?
Human Immunodeficiency Virus is an acronym for Human Immunodeficiency Virus. It’s a dangerous sexually transmitted disease that causes on the immune system by destroying the cells (CD4 or T cells) that keep it healthy. The immune system becomes weak and unable to protect the body from hazardous illnesses if the necessary number of T cells are not present in the body. Due to the lack of T cells, AIDS, or Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome, occurs during the later stages of this weakening process, and unusual infections develop.
HIV does not destroy the immune system all at once, but it does so over time. Without therapy, an individual can develop AIDS in ten years. HIV/AIDS testing gives you an accurate picture of your health and allows you to seek the help you need. Working with your doctor to develop a treatment plan that combines healthy lifestyle changes with appropriate treatment options is critical if you want to effectively mitigate the effects of HIV and improve your chances of living a full and happy life.
