What is HIV?
HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) is a virus that lives in the blood, breast milk and sexual fluids that weakens the immune system. The virus makes it hard for the body to fight off common germs, viruses, and other invaders.
When the immune system stops working and a person gets sick from the HIV virus, s/he will then have the condition known as AIDS (acquired immune deficiency syndrome). HIV is mainly spread through unprotected sex and sharing needles.
Symptoms of HIV
Testing for HIV
HIV testing is a simple blood test. No need for fasting. Test results are either positive or negative. A negative HIV test result means that you do not show signs of HIV. A positive HIV test means that you show signs of HIV and will need to speak to your primary care physician for treatment.
At InOut Labs we order the 4th Generation HIV test which is the most current one available.
HIV testing is available only in our Morton Grove clinic. You can order an HIV test on its own, or as part of one of our STD Panels.
