Hi Dr Bob, October is a nice time in sydney! The weather heats up and the great atmosphere and festivals begin!

Thankyou for your fast reponse but I did not word my previous message correctly. Please if you dont mind replying to my question below. So it is clearer for me for my HIV hotline.

Is a HIV antibody test taken at 3 months (after exposure) conclusive for a person who has Hashimoto's or Graves disease (Thyroid Disease) and takes propylthiouracil(Thyroid Medication)???

OR should they take another test after the 3 month window period?

Thankyou so much!!!

Response from Dr. Frascino

Hey, Aussie.

Yes, a negative HIV-antibody test in a person with thyroid disease taking propylthiouracil would be considered conclusive three months after a potential HIV exposure.

Cheers mate.

Dr. Bob
