tpha positive
Apr 28, 2009

I am, 27, male, and TPHA Positive. . How Serious is TPHA being positive? What precautions can I have to exercise? Any medicine to turn TPHA negative? ragi

Response from Dr. Young

Hello Ragi,

The TPHA test is a test for syphilis. If positive, you should be treated, usually with a series of penicillin injections. The test will likely remain positive for life, but with treatment there should be no significant risk of medical complications, nor need to restrict your exercise.

Be well, BY
