谨记:进行艾滋病毒检测对于您的健康、您的伴侣、您的生活和 您的未来很重要。事实上,艾滋病毒是可预防的,您可以减低或消除自己的感染风险。进行早期检测就可以尽早开始治疗,获得更好的治疗效果。很多病毒感染者通 过早期检测和适当的治疗都能够活得很久,并且过着正常的生活,因为科学和艾滋病毒治疗领域取得了很大的发展。


如果您担心自己可能感染艾滋病毒,马上就进行检测吧。确诊得越早,您保持健康和正常寿命的机会越高。进行艾滋病毒检测就意味着,如果您被确诊为艾滋病毒阳 性,您可以在感染对自己的身体和健康产生过多损害之前开始接受治疗。这就是“早期诊断”。进行艾滋病毒检测很重要,因为未经诊断的艾滋病毒感染者可能很长 一段时间都自我感觉很健康,但实际上病毒感染会严重侵害他们的身体。而且他们还可能把病毒传染给他人。


人一旦感染了艾滋病毒,病毒就会感染和破坏血液中的细胞(称为CD4细胞)。CD4细胞担负着抵抗感染的职责,在人类免疫系统中起着关键作用。如果您知道自己感染了艾滋病毒,医生就可以为您进行定期血液检测,查看您的免疫系统功能是否正常。检测会测量您血液中的CD4细胞的数量(即您的CD4细胞计数)以及艾滋病毒的数量(病毒载量)。医生就能判断什么时候应该为您开始进行艾滋病毒治疗,通常治疗为抗艾滋病毒药物组合使用。治疗能够提高您的CD4细胞计数并降低您的病毒载量。

This varies from person to person. The only way to be sure if you have been infected with HIV is to have an HIV test. You cannot tell from symptoms alone. If you have HIV, it’s very important that it’s diagnosed for the best chance of getting treatment and care, and of staying well.

Typical symptoms include a fever, sore throat, headache, aches and pains, and a blotchy red rash. In some people this illness is so mild that it passes without being noticed. Some people mistake it for the flu, but for some people it is more severe and they may need to see a doctor. However, because the symptoms are similar to symptoms of many other conditions, HIV might not be diagnosed at the time.

If you’ve had unprotected sex and notice these symptoms about two weeks later, you might want to consider having an HIV test.

After this initial illness, it’s not uncommon for people to live with HIV and not to have any symptoms at all. But the virus will still be causing damage to the immune system, and without treatment most people with HIV will eventually become ill because of it.

HIV-related illnesses can cause a wide range of symptoms. These can include fevers and night sweats, a high temperature, a cough that won’t go away, unexplained weight loss, severe diarrhoea, bad headaches, or persistent mouth and skin problems. Of course, these can all have other causes.

However, no one should assume they are infected if they have any of these symptoms. Each of these symptoms can be related to other illnesses. Again, the only way to determine whether you are infected is to be tested for HIV infection. To confirm your HIV status please get tested at your nearest healthcare provider or Klinik Kesihatan.

You also cannot rely on symptoms to establish that a person has AIDS. The symptoms of AIDS are similar to the symptoms of many other illnesses. AIDS is a medical diagnosis made by a doctor based on specific criteria established by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

REMEMBER:
Early diagnosis and treatment are essential for maintaining your health. Take control of your health and your life. Take an HIV Test Today. If you have additional questions or concerns about HIV/AIDS, please contact TemanTeman.org or Facebook.com/TemantemanMY
