Please help an Arab girl Bob..forgot to add something

Mar 16, 2007

Dear Bobby Bob, first off i must tell how much i looove you,you are my favorite Dr. ever! Now up to my question,we don't have fda approved test where i live, labs here only use a swiss machine manufactured by "Roche" it uses the ELISA method and perform an Antibody and Antigen combined test (most probable a 4th generation test), the results take 2 hours to be ready. i have done the test at 3 different labs just to be sure of my negative result, do you think i can rely on these results? (PS:all labs used the same machine).Second, i have a vaginal yeast infection that is not getting cured it's been there since the last 6 months, can i move on with my life knowing that i had the test done after 4 months and 10 days? Send my best regards to Dr. Steve, je t'adore bob... oops j'ai oublie de te demander dans le 1er poste a propos des valeurs que j'ai eu. la 1ere fois j'ai eu une valeur de 0.36 (<.9 --> neg), la 2eme fois j'ai eu une valeur de 0.59, la 3eme fois j'ai eu une valeur de 0.48, est ce que ces valeurs ont aucune valeur?lol ou bien je peux compter sur les valeurs etatnt negatives?? merci de nouveau

Response from Dr. Frascino

Salut Jeune Fille Arabe,

Oui, tu peux compter sur tes résultats. C'est sûr : tu es définitivement VIH négatif !

A propos les trois valeurs (0.36, 0.59 et 0.48), Tous sont moins de 0.9 et moins de 0.9 veut dire négatif. Alors, tu es négatif multiplié par trois ! C'est évident, non ? On peut dire que tes valeurs ont valeur !

Bisettes et Crêpes Suzette.

Dr. Bob
