|neg elisa and p24 but anemic
Dec 2, 1999
If anemia was caused by a recent hiv infection would the elisa test and p24 have shown positive after the cbc confirmed iron deficiency amongst other symptoms?
Response from Mr. Molaghan
Hello Acute HIV infection does not usually demonstrate a profound anemia. HIV related anemia is usually seen as the result of chronic infection or as a side effect of many HIV medications. Iron deficiency anemia is not indicative of HIV disease, but some people with HIV disease may coincidentally have iron deficiency also.
Is it possible to feel 100% fine during SYMPTOMATIC HIV disease?
Very depressed and fatigued
