Indeterminate HIV Test
Jan 13, 2002

What does it mean when your test is indeterminate for the Elisa test and then also have an indeterminate Western Blot test? It was 5 weeks when I took the HIV tests.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Indeterminate means that the tests cannot be officially called positive or negative. Further testing and followup is warranted in 4-8 weeks.

Question for the good doctor.
Abdominal Pain and Tenderness
