Can Taking Garlic supplements

Oct 6, 2011

I know I have a yeast infection, probably from stress and eating bad. I bought garlic pills the other day to kill the yeast. I took one at night and in the morning. Then I got tested the same day and was negative. Is it possible taking potent galic supplements give a false negative on a hiv test?

Response from Dr. Young


(We don't typically answer questions about HIV testing on this forum.)

There is nothing about diet (including garlic supplements) that influences the accuracy of HIV testing.
