3 times positive in elisa

Aug 5, 2012

Hi doc

First time I will do this coz realy im very confused I took elisa test with . my friend med tech he found out its possitive so after that day he repeat the test and just same result range of 2.78. So after few days we repeat again and its showing result of 2.50.. Do u think im realy hiv positive? Do I have a chance of having false positive? Realy im begging for your answer asap coz im working here in middle east its very hard to do some moves. Thanks a lot

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Those are high values for a HIV screening test. You need to have a confirmatory western blot test performed on one of these samples to confirm that test result.

Newly Infected but low VL
should i start medication although viral load is undetectable?
