Understand Steps of AIDS Treament Plan

It’s all true that there is no cure for HIV/AIDS, but treatment is available. Yes, there are a variety of treatments that can help keep symptoms at bay and improve the quality and length of life for those who have already developed symptoms.

Few of the approved and accepted ones are note below. Read on…

  • Antiretroviral therapy suppresses the replication of the HIV virus in the body. A combination of several antiretroviral drugs, called highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART), has been very effective in reducing the number of HIV particles in the bloodstream. This is measured by the viral load (how much free virus is found in the blood). Preventing the virus from replicating can improve T-cell counts and help the immune system recover from the HIV infection.
  • HAART, though not a cure for HIV, but has been very effective for the past 12 years. People on HAART with suppressed levels of HIV can still transmit the virus to others through sex or by sharing needles. There is good evidence that if the levels of HIV remain suppressed and the CD4 count remains high (above 200 cells/mm3), life can be significantly prolonged and improved.
  • Other treatment therapy is preventive antibiotics. You may also be taking prophylactic (preventive) antibiotics to try to reduce your risk of opportunistic infections, which that take advantage of your weakened immune system in order to grow in your body. They include bacterial pneumonias, fungal infections, and intestinal infections such as salmonella and shigella. They can cause a variety of unpleasant symptoms, and some of them are life-threatening, so it’s a good idea to take steps to prevent them.

At last, always remember whatever emotional upset you turn but don’t hesitate, if you have any of the risk factors for HIV infection, or if you develop symptoms of AIDS. Instead call for an appointment with your health care provider today to handle it with ease and to live a normal long life easily and conveniently.
