Undetectable equal to negative?

Image default
February 2015

Who has hiv may have a life normal! And, with that, I don't want you to think that the time for “wow! Hey!

Nothing like that! I experienced this thing of wow, wow and, I assure you, it's not a good way to live. And say that the…

… Undetectable viral load equal to negative?

It doesn't solve the equation and, say, no ´ [and quite so.

And if you think about how long a person lives with HIV

A person with viral load undetectable can stop worrying about transmitting HIV? Undetectable equal to negative?

Having undetectable viral load changes the way you talk about HIV serology? Do you understand that this assertive Undetectable Equal to Negative is incorrect?

Getting to undetectable is not always easy to do - but once you get there, it is definitely an achievement for your health.

This is what says the doctor in question, who is the author of the text. I remember having a viral load count of over three million, and when I saw the result, as much as they tried to calm me down, nothing, absolutely nothing made sense to me and I left CRT-A which was still , in Antônio Carlos Street, in Cerqueira César, totally desolate and, without knowing how I got there, I crossed a street without looking and “hit a bus”!

You may not understand this and I know the phrase is strange, but the truth is that I collided with the side of the bus that had just passed me (thank goodness) and if I was a few seconds early there would even end my life with HIV.

Videx (Damn Nomenclature. But it didn't lead me to the undetectable, not the negative or non-transferable…)

Videx
Each “tablet of these” averaged something more than an inch (2,5cm) and, of course, could not be swallowed. It had to be chewed and. If there's something that tastes similar to Hell's English sauce, that's the case…

Well, I'm not going to repeat myself completely, but I faced a medicine called "Videx" and its worst side effect would be a "fulminant pancreatitis", a rather loquacious name.

Well, that did not happen and here I am, with you! But I kept my spartan and draconian adherence, I wanted to, and despite all my suicide attempts, what I really wanted to do was live, now I know and, I confessed, every suicide attempt of mine was a cry:

Guys, I'm here, trying to do my best, but you do not help me and it's better to die to live like this!

Well, in six months I became undetectable. A lot of water has rolled and I will not stay, not on this page, from blah blah blah with respect to my follies, what I am trying to do is expose that Undetectable equals negative is not a truth. It is a misinterpretation that many “pastors” use to say that, as the pastor tried to co-opt me, it would be enough for me to contribute the modest sum of $ 1.000,00 God, who has no Cash Book as I understand it, would pass a filter, yes, that's right, a filter in my blood! My will…. Well, I realize that I'm escaping the scope of the text, but I'll be back here in good time to create a link that leads to the topic briefly outlined in this post.

The Concern of Dr Mathew Rodriguez and the belief of the Undetectable equal to negative!

Not! Undetectable equal to negative is an incorrect statement as will the text below, translated by me!

But, what exactly does this mean to be undetectable if this is not equal to being negative?

In your Tpersonal umblr, Joe Gallant, an HIV doctor at the Southwest Care Center in Santa Fe, New Mexico, answers questions from people living with HIV who are concerned about a number of issues, including their undetectable viral loads. Before continuing to read the text, see who talks about it and the solidity of its arguments and experiences

In January 17 2015 a anonymous user (…) asked

Hello doctor, I read in an earlier post that someone said that "the undetectable is the new negative."

You agree with this statement at least to some extent?

Dr. Gallant replied:

VirusTo some extent, yes, undetectable is equal to negative. But only up to a point.

Transmission point of view, having a viral load is undetectable close negative starting point of prognosis and life expectancy, people with undetectable viral load CD4 normal has more in common with HIV-negative people than they do with people with untreated HIV infection.

But there are still important differences between someone with well-controlled HIV and someone without HIV !!!

If there were not, we would not be looking for a cure yet. Even with well-controlled HIV, you have a chronic medical condition that is expensive to treat and that causes an increase in chronic inflammation and immune activation. You still have viral DNA integrated into your own genome.

I'm not looking to get to the point of saying that "undetectable is the new negative", he says, which continues:

Although I understand feeling, it is necessary to keep in mind the Viral blisters, which can not be predicted when they will happen, whether periodically or randomly in practically all cases of HIV infection.


Yeah. And there it is. This is the point that concerns me, the growing number of people, and people of good character, tested hard on HIV infection and shameful "N" proposals who have never betrayed themselves in their ideals. These people, I know! Do not sell themselves.

But I fear that they may be mistaken and in good faith because, see: There was a second case of PrEP Failure due to Drug Resistance…

No, I'm not what they say, one who likes the "doctrine of fear". I prefer to be wise and wonder who was the transmitting agent of a virus resistant to a particular drug combination and, after all, when will it be located and how much damage did it unknowingly spread…

Cruel? I?

Yes. But how many people did he, in good faith, relying on your PrEP and its undetectability, will have been infected with HIV before this event, the rediscovery of detectability, leaving aside, so to speak, the viral blipes?

And your innocent victims…? How many other people will they have taken "that" (from the top of 8 methadone tablets a day I can call this), because this is one thing growing in geometric progression…

I remember, and I remember well, this headline while speaking, in good faith, that Undetectable equals negative?

See: I can't find the “right” image with the message that said: There are already four victims in São Paulo!

Who has hiv can have a normal life
And it was just over three or four when this unmentionably absurd headline, between 1's 2000 and 31's 2011's December 11.000, about XNUMX people died.

This thing, calling it a gay plague, this is a lurid thing that the media has endorsed and hasn't done the necessary for yet Mea Culpa, the dogs…

And it was just over three or four when this ineffably absurd headline, between 1 January 2000 and 31 December 2011, about 11.000 people died. And I was doing the math and that gave, at the time, and math is the point where I'm very remunerated, about thirty deaths a month, which gives about three deaths a day. And in the beginning, there were only four (…).

And… no, I'm not spreading fear. I am being realistic and objective and all I see in the undetectable viral load is that it can serve as an “extra layer” of protection or the desire to have a child.

I know, within my circle of relationships, a close friend who has always maintained and maintains unprotected sexual intercourse with her husband and he is seronegative (or unrepentant, as some euphemism lovers prefer).

But they knew each other like this, they related to each other and it was only after the first child that they were called to reality that, at that time and in synthesis, was a possible tragedy.

But they did the exams, he was considered, as some prefer, to love the hate speech, "clean." (…).

So I put myself in the position of those for whom all care is little and, as I learned, the hard way… which is as follows:

In doubt, do not exceed!

And I remember that fool Ronald Reagan, I believe it was him, but I'm not sure, another mentally retarded Trump who said that “in two years we would definitely have the vaccine against that“. Yeah, mane…

To this day, and there goes more than thirty years, all I see repeating itself is the stark headline:

The 1% of the cure.

It started like this. Very bad is true. But one thing was true. It started with less than half a dozen people and it is estimated that there are at least 600.000 people living with HIV in Brazil. How many PrEP failures (hopefully not) will be necessary for people to understand that the risk is alfo and that PrEP should, as I see it, be used as a second layer of protection and not a green light for unprotected sex, even because hepatitis C is an STI and there are numerous cases of incurable gonorrhea in the world ....?

Well, we have the promise of amFar to bring healing to 2020 and see what a cute video it looks like more Marvel superhero movie ad!

What you have seen above, bordering on madness, by the resounding presentation; but from the heart, I want to be wrong. What I can say about it will not come from my hands, but from respectable scientists, in this text!

And look ...

I think that we often have only to accept life as it is, as it presents itself to us and seek to improve it with patience. Myself I do not think about healing...

I think of going to live, and my infected told me solid things, that she saw with her eyes that took me, in a moment of great happiness to write this article:

Now yes! No limits to dream!

Yes… I like to convey hope and I would love to say for sure that undetectable equals non-transferable, but it is not!

I really like to spread joy! But I must be sensible and loyal to my ideas and to what I have learned in my life in voluntary service.

I have seen a sad humanitarian crisis close up and all I wish for is not a new crisis of this size or even less!

And I cut and paste what Dr. Mathew Rodriguez, from a very serious hospital wrote:

But there are still significant differences between someone with well-controlled HIV and someone without HIV - if there were not, we would not be still looking for a cure. Even with well-controlled HIV, you have a chronic medical condition which is expensive to treat and which causes an increase in chronic inflammation and immune activation. You still have viral DNA integrated into your own genome. I'm not looking to get to the point of saying that "undetectable is the new negative", although I understand the feeling it is necessary to keep in mind the Viral blisters, which can not be avoided and that it can happen, periodically or randomly in practically all cases of HIV infection.

And I, Claudio Souza, prefer to maintain a moderate stance in this regard, as it is as I said, since 1996, when the combination therapy was developed, where the protease inhibitor plays a fundamental role in the “combination therapy”, the said cocktail and I remember seeing in a lecture by DR Drusio Varela that he talked to another doctor and this doctor said:

These "new remedies" are working!

Here is a brief definition:

Protease inhibitor

A drug capable of inhibiting the action of the specific viral protease enzyme essential for the formation of the infectious HIV particle. If the viral particle is not properly formed, HIV will not infect new cells. (AIDS News Agency.).

In the agency AIDS you find vast amount of information on this link.

Anyway, almost ending, I still speak of “one percent of the cure, since 1996 I expose this:

Healing AIDS? New Negative
In 1996

It is this sensationalism that Dr Rodrigu seeks to avoid and that I seek, from my humble position.

Along the same lines, the same “scientific magazine” puts the image that turns a little lower on the sides of every newspaper band, and before that I wanted to draw the attention of “we all” that the huge Most of the people who walk through the streets of a city like São Paulo, with more than ten million inhabitants, is that they, the citizens of this beloved city, read only the headlines, because they may not have time to read or have no money. to buy and what they see makes them think, but something like this: “Wow! Wow! We don't need condoms anymore, because they saw it:

Who has hiv can have a normal life
What's up? Here we go! One of the most irresponsible things I've ever seen!

Yeah ... And where it can take us.

With the word Dr Dráuzio Varella:

In my opinion… All care is little

I have been HIV positive for more than 20 years and had had an undetectable viral load for several years. However, this month, while doing the routine exams, I was given 375 loading copies of HIV RNA for 1 / ml. This month I took the flu vaccine. Could this have influenced the increase of the charge and it has reappeared? Will the treatment continue to be undetectable again? I am worried.

And here we have this answer
Claudio Santos May 30, 2017 at 16:38:43 am

Hello, my friend, you're unmoved. I see no cause for concern, and yes, it may have been an adverse effect of the flu vaccine, which I do not take by choice. But it may be something known in medical jargon, called Viral blipe. (This link opens in another tab).

Claudio Souza September 12, 2016 at 17:06:57 am

This type of occurrence is treated as a medical emergency. You can go to qq CTA, if you know where there u, your partner should know) explain what happened. They will make a quick test to see if you are HIV positive or not. Keep in mind that after this is the time counts against vc and the more you let time pass, the lower your chances and your time limit (the time from which there is nothing else to do) is 72 hours. The ideal is to start within two hours.
