Non active patient dating
Dear Alice, I recently began dating a guy who is HIV positive.I know how it is transmitted and the risks involved, but I was wondering if there are any statistics out about being infected in my similar situation.Usually, only one drug is needed to treat latent TB infection.A person with active TB disease has a large amount of TB bacteria in the body.Many people who have latent TB infection never develop active TB disease.But some people who have latent TB infection are more likely to develop active TB disease than others.Tuberculosis, or “TB,” is an airborne contagious disease that can be fatal if left untreated.Fortunately, though most people who are infected with TB never get sick. TB is a disease that starts by infection in the lungs, but can spread to other organs, including the kidneys, brain, abdomen, and spine.
They include: If you have latent TB infection (a positive TB skin test reaction or positive QFT) and you are in one of these high-risk groups, you need to take medicine to keep from developing active TB disease. The medicine usually taken for the treatment of latent TB infection is called isoniazid (INH). If you take your medicine as instructed by your doctor or nurse, it can keep you from developing active TB disease.
Risk is reduced even further when the following qualifications are met: Risk of transmission varies with viral load, which is entirely unique to each individual.
Consistent and correct condom usage is key to lowering transmission risk in mixed status couples, regardless of viral load.
I had been working in the corporate world for over 40 years.
