There is currently no cure for HIV but todays leading medications can help control the virus and keep the amount of HIV in your body undetectable.

What should I expect from treatment?

Your provider will prescribe a combination of medications to reduce the amount of HIV in your body. You will routinely have blood work done to test your immune cell count and test how much HIV is in your body (viral load). It is extremely important to take this medication exactly as your provider tells you to everyday. Staying on track with your medication will help keep your immune system strong, keep your viral load low, and decrease the chance of the virus becoming resistant. Some common side effects that you may experience are stomach/intestine upset, high cholesterol, diabetes, and liver damage. It is important to see your provider routinely so that you can be properly monitored for these side effects. If these side effects become unmanageable or if you experience any other side effects, do not stop taking your medication until you speak with your provider.

What happens if I don’t get treated?  

HIV left untreated will progress to AIDS (acquired immunodeficiency syndrome). This is when the amount of immune cells you have in your body reaches a critically low level, leaving you at a very high risk of having a number of severe illnesses. You can still progress to AIDS even while on medication, however, taking your medication correctly every day can significantly slow this process.
