|Diabetes and Hiv/aids.
Aug 13, 2008
Hi, I have diabetes! And I was wondering since I get bloodwork done every like 3months will my bloodwork show that I have hiv/aids. Like, can you see hiv/aids with any blood work? Or does it have to be a certain kind?

You need to get an ELISA, western blot, or HIV viral load test to make sure. There are changes that happen to people who are infected with HIV: Low HDL and total cholesterol, increased in MCH and other values in a CBC-SMAC. But the only sure way is to run a HIV test.
