Frequent urination, numbness of hands, thirst while hiv positive
Feb 25, 2013

I was just diagnosed hiv positive, prior to that i had symptoms of thirst, hunger, frequent urination, numbness and high blood pressure. Is this advanced HIV stage or diabetes? Or a combo of hiv and diabetes? Should I treat this as diabetes alone?

Response from Mr. Vergel

You should talk to your doctor about this. Those symptoms could be related to diabetes or other issues. A physical exam and a comprehensive metabolic blood panel can help your physician diagnose the cause (s) of your symptoms
