AIDS-related illnesses

Dr. Arthur Frazão (Doctor)

Diseases "related to AIDS"Are those that attack HIV-infected patients due to a weak immune system, indicating that the patient is in the final stage of HIV infection.

Some examples of AIDS-related illnesses are:

  • Tuberculosis;
  • Persistent thrush;
  • Pneumonia;
  • Toxoplasmosis;
  • Sarcoma of Kaposi;
  • Cytomegalovirus disease;
  • Neurotoxoplasmose;
  • Encephalopathy;
  • Extrapulmonary cryptococcosis;
  • Mycoses;
  • Heart disease;
  • Non-Hodgkin lymphoma B cells;
  • Chagas disease;
  • Slimming over 10% by weight;
  • Diarrhea for more than 1 month;
  • Fever for more than 1 month;
  • Estomatite, aftas;
  • Purple.

Many HIV patients with neurological problems during the course of the disease with cognitive impairment and memory, as well as impaired ability to concentrate and perform complex tasks.

Syndrome of weight loss associated with HIV is a term which refers to the loss of body 10% or more by weight without justification dieting or increased physical activity. The metabolic problems caused by HIV, by opportunistic infections or certain medications prevent the body to absorb and adequately process the food, resulting in weight loss.

Treatment of AIDS-related diseases

The treatment of AIDS-related illnesses should be done with the use of medicine prescribed by the doctor to control the infection, and antiretroviral therapy with the use of the cocktail. However there may be drug interactions and to reduce the unpleasant symptoms of the patient's doctor may choose to use other drugs.

After controlling for the disease, the doctor may recommend that the patient receive antiretroviral therapy only and perform the CD4 and viral load tests to confirm the concentration of CD4 and virus in the blood.

Just to talk about something I I stick to pneumonia, I lost count when he was the eighth I passed. I had two meningitis (viral), two pulmonary embolisms and a heart attack; and not feel like someone who is in the "final stage of HIV infection."

AIDS can even kill. But attitude counts a lot and I recommend for further clarification that you have been this link: Opportunistic Diseases
