Question about false positive HIV Tests
« on: February 15, 2009, 04:01:43 PM »
Why do HIV tests sometimes come out false/positive and what could be the cause?

Any idea? I hear about stories that some came out false positives and sometimes it's just so scary to know when that incident happens to you, right?

So i wanna hear some feedbacks regarding this. and how do these things happen?

You were trying to say that the result was negative but then later you will know that you have it. because sometimes medical diagnostic test needs more examine to determine the accurate result.. or maybe during the examine the person not infected yet.

@leerzej23

i am not so sure why there are rumored reports like these but i guess the testing method was not properly done? ??? ???

but right now hiv testing has become clear and easy that it would just take you minutes to see the result...have you heard about rapid test kits?

i think i read from some websites saying that..flu shots will cause false positives on the hiv test...totoo kaya yun? sinabi rin daw yun sa 2006 New England Journal of Medicine report ..masilip nga rin..

British Medical Journal published an article stating that recreational drug use will cause the body to produce the proteins looked for on the hiv? test. the hiv test only identifies the presence of 1, 2, or 3 proteins for a positive result depending on which country one tests in. naku if this is the case then please pray for all those who have been misdiagnosed with hiv and AIDS

am not a doctor pero gusto ko lang din makita kung totoo...
