Anemia give false +
Aug 12, 2006

Dear Doc,

I am from South Africa and not happy with our Medical professionals answers and way of working with HIV/AIDS prevention. The Question I do have is the following is it possible that when a person is anemic that a false positive can occure when testing for HIV?

Your help will be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks

Response from Dr. Frascino

Hello,

Nope! Anemia does not cause false-positive HIV tests.
