Diabetes and Hiv Testing!
Aug 22, 2006
Hi Dr. Bob,
I am sorry if this is the wrong site for this question, but I did not see where else on here to ask so here is my simple question: If you have diabetes or high blood sugar levels and you are unaware of it so you are not taking any meds for it, will it intefere with your Hiv antibody tests results causing a false test result. Thank you ahead of time for your answer.
Response from Dr. Frascino
Diabetes with or without elevated blood sugars will not affect the results of your HIV tests.
