What Is AIDS

Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) is caused by HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus).

 AIDS is the end stage form of HIV (Stage 4 HIV). Patients are first diagnosed with HIV, and then the disease may later progress to AIDS, although not all patients who have HIV will end up with AIDS.

HIV is a virus that attacks the body's immune system and thus breaks down its ability to fight and prevent infections. HIV specifically attacks the white blood cells in the immune system called the CD4 cells. These cells are critical in our body's defense against diseases.

HIV is spread by contact with contaminated body fluids.

HIV is diagnosed with a blood test. In infancy, an HIV PCR test is done (assesses DNA to find HIV present). In patients older than 18monts, a test called HIV ELISA is done. Nowadays, there are many rapid finger prick tests available for HIV that have a sensitivity of 90-95%.

Blood tests used to monitor the disease are CD4 counts and the HIV viral load in the blood. Initially, as HIV multiplies in the body, the number of viral cells in the blood will be high- thus the patient will have a high viral load. Inversely the CD4 count of the immune system will be very low, as the HIV is actively destroying the cells.

When a patient starts treatment, the reverse should be seen in blood tests- The HIV viral load should come down, and the number of CD4 cells in the body should increase.

There has been a dramatic change in HIV/AIDS medicine over the past decade. HIV is no longer a death sentence.  AIDS is now on the road to become a chronic medical condition,  that can be managed life-long, in the same way as diabetes or high blood pressure. Patients who are on HIV treatment can have a normal lifespan and be healthy throughout.

What Is Hepatitis C

  • Hepatitis C is a liver infection caused by the Hepatitis C virus (HCV) and can be acute or chronic. HCV is a blood borne virus. The incubation time frame varies from 2 weeks to 6 weeks. After the initial infection, most of the people don’t show any symptoms for many years. 

What Is Human Immunodeficiency Virus, HIV - AIDS

  • Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV), attacks the immune system of human body. The immune system protects the body from all sorts of ailments. A cell called T-helper cell (also called the CD4 cells) in the white blood cells (WBCs) is attacked by it. The virus destroys it and replicates it by making its own copies in the WBC. So as it breaks down the immune system, the person can’t fight against any infections or diseases.
  • AIDS (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome) is a set of symptoms acquired due to HIV.  This is the last stage of HIV as the immune system degrades that it can’t fight even the minor infections. 

Symptoms Treated With SYNTHIVAN TABLET

What Are The Symptoms Of AIDS

During the initial period of infection with HIV, patients may experience flu-like symptoms such as fatigue, runny nose, chills and body aches. Swollen lymph nodes over the body may also be present.

As the immune system weakens, the patient may present with recurrent episodes of infections.

The hallmark of infections in HIV is that patients usually experience infections by "opportunistic" organisms. These are bacteria, fungi or parasites that under normal circumstances in a healthy immune system would not cause disease.

These include tuberculosis, fungal infections of the lungs and meninges in the brain (pneumocystis pneumonia and cryptococcal meningitis). Often the patient may also present with recurrent yeast infections in the mouth- oral Candida or vaginal thrush.

AIDS is defined as stage 4 HIV, or when certain opportunistic infections are present. These include HIV wasting syndrome (wasting and loss of weight), HIV encephalopathy (degeneration of brain function due to HIV) and oesophageal candida (yeast infection in the esophagus).

What Are The Symptoms Of Hepatitis C

  • The symptoms visible acutely are: fever, fatigue, reduced appetite, nausea, vomits, dark urine, grey faeces, jaundice or joint pain.  

What Are The Symptoms Of Human Immunodeficiency Virus, HIV - AIDS

  • Within 2-4 weeks of getting the infection, one may experience flu like symptoms like cold, fever, chills, sore throat, mouth ulcers, fatigue etc. After that, it becomes asymptomatic, till it reaches AIDS stage.
