Response from Dr. Frascino

Hello,

Your repeatedly negative HIV tests out to "28.4" weeks are definitive and conclusive. You've dodged the HIV bullet! HIV is not your problem. No way. No how. No additional HIV testing is warranted. Whatever is causing your weight loss, one thing is certain: it's not HIV.

Stop worrying. Start WOO-HOO-ing.

Dr. Bob
