Alcoholism and test validity

Nov 16, 2011


Would alcoholism affect the validity of an HIV test taken after 90 days? Would drinking large amounts over a long period of time weaken the immune system to the point where antibody response would be delayed past that point? Thank you.

Response from Mr. Cordova

Hi there:

No, alcoholism would not affect the validity of your test.

In health, Richard

can a person catch hiv from virgins ??
