Oct 25, 1999

What does having mildly low globulin have with hiv? does this automatically mean you are hiv positive?

Response from Mr. Molaghan

Hello Many people with HIV disease experience protein abnormalities such as decreased globulin levels. This is due to a complex metabolic and immunologic process associated with chronic disease and other factors.

No. A mildly low serum globulin level does not mean that you are HIV positive. The only way to confirm HIV infection is by getting an HIV blood test.
