HIV Management at eInfectionMD
HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) is a virus that attacks immune cells and interferes with the body’s ability to fight infections.
HIV infection can cause AIDS to develop. The virus can be transmitted through contact with infected blood, semen, or vaginal fluids.
Within a short time from HIV infection, flu-like symptoms such as fever, sore throat, and fatigue can occur. Initially, the disease is asymptomatic until it progresses.
At eInfectionMD, we provide HIV management. Normally, this includes prescribing and monitoring the use of antiretroviral therapy to help control the infection.
There are several types of antiretroviral agents that act on separate stages of the HIV lifecycle. This use of multiple drugs to treat the disease is known as highly active antiretroviral therapy or HAART. This method helps to maintain the function of the patient’s immune system and prevents infections that can lead to a life-threatening illness or death.
HIV management has been so effective and tolerable that the progression of the disease to AIDs has become increasingly rare.
If you have been diagnosed with HIV, the skilled physicians accessible through eInfectionMD can help you manage the disease and lead a normal life.
