pernicious anaemia-compromised immune sys?
Jul 18, 2006

hey bob.. This is the 33rd time i am askin you this ques! but then i realise ur busy,so ill keep postin my ques! hehe ill keep this short.do reply please. ill be greatful to you forever. I had a possible risky exposure 11 months back. tested negative thru elisa after 9.5 months. but recently diagnosed with genital warps and extremely low vit b-12 deficiency. does that mean that my immune system is compromised, as i might be having pernicious anaemia? so cud my seroconversion be delayed? i also am thinking of goin for hep C test..

Response from Dr. Frascino

Hello,

Genital "warps"???? What the hell are those?

Is your immune system compromised because you have "warps" and low vitamin B-12? Nope!

Could your seroconversion be delayed? Nope!

Your negative 9.5-month HIV test is definitive and conclusive. HIV is not your problem. No way. No how.

Since I don't know what your "possible risky exposure" was, I can't really comment on the need for hepatitis C screening. Your doctor should be able to address this concern and order the test if indicated.

So, I guess the 33rd time must have been the lucky one, eh? Oh no, now all the folks waiting for a response will post their question 33 times!!! Yikes! Hey WWs, listen up! Don't do it! Check the archives and be patient! Sometimes I get backed up several weeks in responding. But I do read every question eventually, and if I don't' respond, there is usually a reason, such as similar question has already been answered and posted in the archives, question too vague, question too nutty, questioner voted for Dubya in last election . . . etc.
