Hi there! My question is that can bodybuilding affect the outcome of HIV tests by delaying the formation of antibodies?

Response from Ms. Fields-Gardner

Thank you for a very interesting question. I do not know of any research that supports the notion that typical bodybuilding exercise is a factor or can either transiently or permanently alter tests for the presence of HIV in the blood. -Cade.
