|Increase in Liloprotein (a) due to HIV infection?
Sep 29, 2012
Possible exposure is from unprotected Oral sex in July.
I read somewhere that an increase in Liloprotein (a) is a usual lipidic disorders during HIV infection, especially when Liloprotein (a) values fluctuate very little throughout a person's lifetime. My LP(a) count in April (before possible exposure) is 117.8 mg/L but is 326.82 mg/L in September (6 weeks after possible exposure).
Other symptoms include slight sorethroat and enlarged lymph node that hurt in September (6 weeks after possible exposure) that disappeared within a few days.

Just get an ELISA/WESTERN BlOT and/or a HIV PCR and get it over with. There are no "surrogates" of HIV infection that would make someone not get tested.
