amfar: What treatments are available for #HIV/#AIDS?

Today,

What treatments are available for / ? . . Today, a number of drugs are available to treat HIV/AIDS that make it easier than ever to stay healthy. Many people living with HIV are able to take one pill daily that contains a combination of highly active antiretroviral therapy known as ART. When taken as directed, ART can reduce the amount of HIV in the blood to undetectable levels and enable the body’s immune cells to rebound to normal levels. Even when people respond well to ART, however, it does not cure HIV. And while today’s ART can dramatically improve the health and well-being of people living with HIV, they may still face long-term side effects from treatment, such as heart disease and other disorders. . . See link in bio for more information about treating HIV. . .

What if I test positive for ? . . If you test positive for HIV, you can take immediate steps to protect your health. Early medical treatment and a healthy lifestyle can help you stay well. See a doctor, even if you do not feel sick. Find a doctor who has experience treating HIV. There are now many drugs to treat HIV and help you maintain your health and avoid transmitting HIV to others. Use condoms the correct way every time you have sex. Get screened for sexually transmitted diseases. Have a tuberculosis test done. Undetected TB can cause serious illnesses, but it can be successfully treated if caught early. Also get tested for hepatitis C and hepatitis B. Hepatitis C is now curable with the correct medications. If you test negative for hepatitis B, get vaccinated to prevent infection. . .
