HIV et Hypothyroidisme

Nov 10, 2003

Dear Dr Bob,

Let me first thank you for the wonderful job you are doing here. I do not know how you manage your time to be able to respond to us. I am the French guy you responded to in French (!!!) about 2 months ago and, by the way, I was really impressed by your French knowledge. My question:I had a thyroid removal surgery 2 years ago and am currently taking Levoxil. Having had an exposure to hiv, I tested negative after 13 weeks. Some people told me that, due to my hypothyroidism, I have to wait until the 6 months mark as I may be a late seroconverter. Is this true or can I consider myself out of the woods ?

Encore mille mercis pour le temps consacr me rpondre !


Response from Dr. Frascino

Cher Jean,

Si tu étais impressionne par ma réponse en franais pourquoi tu m'écrives en anglais? J'ai besoin de pratiquer mon franais parce que je voyagerai encore une fois Paris en décembre. Donc, je te répondrai utilisant la langue de Molire, Camus et Sartre. J'espre que tu me comprendras. Le hyperthyrodisme n'effectuera pas le résultat de votre analyse de VIH. Ne t'inquite pas. Ton résultat négatif treize semaines est définitif. Félicitations ! Bravo ! Woo-Hoo-la la la la ! Tu es vraiment en dehors des bois.

A votre bonne santé,

Robert, le médecin
