|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.
