Quick Negative Results Question..

Hi P robably should have came in this forum first. Just been thrown round and round in circles on another forum.

Basically I know that when one is HIV positive they can soon have aids as that's what causes it.


My question is. Do HIV tests at the gum clinic also pick up aids if it was present? Or is that a completely different kettle of fish?


Secondly it is true that if you did have it you would lose quite a lot of weight?

Re: Quick Negative Results Question..

AIDS is when your t-cells are 200 or below...you have HIV with T-cells above 200

Re: Quick Negative Results Question..

That is not what I asked but I got the answer anyway.

If I had aids it would show on an HIV test.

Thanks for your effort though.
