Please Advice

Oct 5, 2010

Dr Frascino, we are looking for advice...plz answer

We are planning on adopting a 3 year old kid , who is born to HIV parents and are expired.My wife is keen on this adoption,as well as scared from further complications.

Luckily blood test results claims the kid to be HIV Negative..

Are there any chance of kid getting developing it later.. Should we test the kid regularly,if we adopt Is the kid too early for HIV test...

Thanks...looking for reply

Response from Dr. Frascino


If the toddler is testing HIV negative (FDA-approved HIV-antibody test) at age three years, you can rest assured he is indeed HIV negative. No additional HIV testing recommended or necessary. Your fears of the youngster developing HIV/AIDS later or having complications related to his HIV-positive parents are unwarranted.
