|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.

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