Hypothyroidism and HIV Testing - Please respond

Oct 10, 2003

Hey Dr Bob,

Does the autoimmune disease "Hypothyroidism" have an impact on the window period of 3 months?

I have repeatedly tested out to 85 days as negative with 4 elisa tests and am concerned.

Response from Dr. Frascino


No, hypothyroidism will not affect the accuracy of HIV tests.

"Repeatedly tested out to 85 days as negative with 4 ELISA tests" and you are "concerned?" Why? You shouldn't be. You're negative.


Congratulations. Stay well.

Dr. Bob
