HIV/HCV Infection Hemoglobin
Sep 7, 2009

I had an incident with blood with a risky intravenous injection drug user. I've had a 11 month tests done HIV and HCV both negative. When i did my CBC it says i have low iron and doctor suggest the possibility of anemia. I have just below the threshold by just a bit of Hemoglobin. I'm just a bit worried. I've had many symptons from chest pain to many others . Can you just give me some feedback on my HIV/HCV tests...i did a liver funtion tests also and everything within the range and cd4 also. Can i be infected with hiv and HCv and my body is not producing antibodies because it is overwhelmed with both infections and it's lowering the amount of oxygen carrying my redblood cells ? thanks ....

Response from Dr. McGovern

I have complete faith in your results. I would not pursue any more testing.
