Opportunistic diseases ?! Facts about AIDS Living with HIV

AIDS-related diseases

Dr. Arthur Frazão (Doctor)

Diseases “related to AIDS”Are those that attack HIV-positive patients, due to the weakness of their immune system, indicating that the patient is in the final stage of HIV infection.

Some examples of AIDS-related illnesses are:

  • Tuberculosis;
  • Persistent candidiasis;
  • Pneumonia;
  • Toxoplasmosis;
  • Sarcoma of Kaposi;
  • Cytomegalovirus disease;
  • Neurotoxoplasmose;
  • Encephalopathy;
  • Extrapulmonary cryptococcosis;
  • Mycoses;
  • Heart diseases;
  • B-cell non-Hodgkin's lymphoma;
  • 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 have neurological problems during the course of the disease, with cognitive and memory impairment, as well as impaired ability to concentrate and perform complex tasks.

HIV-associated weight loss syndrome is a term that refers to the loss of 10% or more body weight without justification for diet or increased physical activity. Metabolic problems caused by HIV, opportunistic infections or certain medications prevent the body from properly absorbing and processing food, resulting in weight loss.

Treatment of AIDS-related illnesses

The treatment of AIDS-related illnesses should be done using drugs prescribed by the doctor to control the infection, in addition to antiretroviral therapy with the use of the cocktail. However, it is possible that there is drug interaction and to reduce the patient's unpleasant symptoms the doctor may indicate the use of other drugs.

After controlling the disease, the doctor may recommend that the patient stay on antiretroviral therapy only and do the CD4 and viral load tests to confirm the concentration of CD4 and viruses in the blood. , Soropositive Blog. OrgNote from the Editor of Seropositivo Web Site: I marked in red the first statement of the doctor who signs this article because I was very angry with the way he described things.

Just to mention one thing, I stick to pneumonia, which I lost count when I went through the eighth that I passed. I had two (viral) meningitis, two pulmonary embolisms and a heart attack; and I don't 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 go to this link: Opportunistic Diseases

And it was not within a "comfort zone"! This is a story that only I have to tell!

I was the first individual, a CPF, not a CNPJ to, in quotes, “Slap my face”!

For all that I lived, it all happened in a period still troubled by prejudice and, yes, there were prices to be paid.

The currency has always been that of social exclusion and I have even hesitated between continuing or not!

The great “IT” of all this is that without this work, I would have nothing left but leisure and I would certainly not endure it. I have a need to be productive.

We are Borg!

If not bored by the empty hours, at least by suicide due to the absolute lack of purpose that my life would have and the terrible impression of parasitosis that would come to affect me. So, I couldn't stop.

I had the opportunity to accomplish many things and, on the other hand, I missed several opportunities to do more, with a deeper and better reach.

Not everything is as desired. Let it rain (Guilherme Arantes)!

Hi! Guys, thanks for getting this far! Your attention and interest is our greatest interest, we work here, me and mara, in order to inform you, make some clarity in some nebulous points of "all of this".

However, we lack financial resources.

If you like work, if you are able to help and want to help, often the cost of a silly day-to-day for us, will certainly make a difference because, we know, the hummingbird, carrying water on the tip of your beak will make all the difference in the effort to put out the forest fire!

Think about it!

Below are some resources to facilitate support!
