Currently HIV should be treated as recommended in the ARV therapy guidelines, at least as soon as your CD4 count falls below 500. The main justification for this recommendation comes from data showing that without HIV treatment, and the resulting high level of inflammation, can significantly increase the risk of cardiovascular disease, liver disease and other conditions. Some experts in the DHHS panel that creates the treatment guidelines in the US, in addition to experts who already developed in other guidelines recommend further treatment for CD4 counts for the same reason, especially in people with a high risk underlying cardiovascular disease, liver disease or other health problems.Not everyone has the same underlying risks for the types of diseases the panel more worried, though. For example, people with a family history of heart disease who had never smoked and who have hepatitis C or B have a low baseline risk for becoming ill with cardiovascular disease, kidney or liver disease. For that person, the decision on when to initiate treatmentthen may be different from a person who has a family history of heart disease, or who smoke or have HCV. In this respect, guidelines provide some flexibility.
Soropositivo.Org Editor's Note? the text itself is a precursor to the START study that revolutionized the way HIV is treated, and today, the year of 2015 onwards, the recommendation here in Brazil is for treatment to begin as soon as the diagnosis is made to optimize the health of people with HIV. From this aspect I stress the need to take the test. Having AIDS is not good, I know. But having AIDS and not knowing it can lead to a disaster of irreversible proportions, since diseases linked to advanced HIV infection (opportunistic diseases) can have devastating effects on the patient's overall health and, to an irreversible situation that may culminate in death or derangement of the physical body, which has become a potentially productive person for many decades, a handicapped person for many decades, and as far as I can reason, no one wants it for himself. Take the test, in SUS environment and you will have the psychological support necessary to face, if this is the case, this new reality. If you are afraid to take the test and you want to talk, on the side of the site there is my contact via whatsapp (and there is no use calling because I do not answer by voice or go crazy). Anyway, I kept the text for reasons of fidelity to the text that I translate and I make this observation that you have already read and reiterate what is at the top of the site: There is life with HIV!What is clear, however, is that the longer people wait after their CD4s fall below 500, the higher your risk of developing diseases related to age. Indeed, one of the strongest predictors of higher risk for most diseases related to age is a cell count below CD4 200.
Treat other infections Current HBV and HIV recommend that people with both HIV infections should initiate therapy (with a backbone of treatments that also fight HBV) as soon as possible. This is because early treatment of HBV significantly reduces the risk of liver cancer and other liver problems without significantly increasing the risk of side effects from the medication. Deciding when to treat HCV is a little more difficult. Although many new drugs are under development, the cure rate for HCV virus in the treatment of most people infected with HIV and HCV in the United States is still relatively low and the side effects of treatment can be severe and unpleasant. When HCV therapy does not work, however, it significantly reduces the risk of developing not only liver disease but also other related conditions.Prevention of Diseases and Monitoring Guidelines for screening Researchers have begun to question whether certain age groups should be linked to screening guidelines because they may need to start at a lower age in people with HIV. For example, some have questioned whether the most popular screening tool for assessing risk of heart attacks, based on data from the long-running Framingham study, should be modified for people with HIV. Experts have doubts whether other tools, such as the FRAX ENHANCED score to assess bone mineral loss, may also have to be adjusted for HIV-positive people. In fact, some recommend that HIV infection alone is sufficient as a risk factor for bone scanning to begin at a younger age, especially for HIV-infected men, which is generally recommended. There is, however, no consistent guideline however in this area. Studies are being done to help identify if current disease screening guidelines for people over the age of 50 are sufficient for people living with HIV. While we await the results of your studies, however, it is important to ask your doctor what the types of disease prevention are and the guidelines for screening are in place for a person your age and medical history and to insist on following these guidelines in their own care. The US Preventive Services Task Force produces screening and disease management guidelines and can be found here. Staying socially and emotionally connected
Numerous studies have found that people who maintain social connections with their family, friends and colleagues and who engage in activities that feel add meaning to their lives not only live longer but also remain healthier than people who are socially isolated and who do not engage in meaningful activities. There are a wide variety of ways to get connected socially if you are not close to family and do not have many friends. Many NGOs have support groups for people with HIV to connect with each other. Volunteering with a charity that works on the causes you believe in, or with a political campaign, can also help you connect socially. Local groups of diagnosing people to exercise citizenship seem to achieve two objectives: social connection and adequacy.
