HIV Test - what is it and how the test is done
The Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) is a virus that is feared all over the world. The main reason is its incurable course and the fact that once it occurs, there is no going back.
HIV is also a destructive virus that only causes deterioration and irreversible destruction of a person’s immune system.
Therefore, it is required for every at-risk person to get tested for this virus. It is also recommended that people who have been exposed to this virus or a person suffering from it get themselves checked and tested for HIV in their blood.
Testing for HIV is done in different ways. However, Nucleic Acid Testing (NAT) is the most preferred method. It involves taking a blood sample from your arm and evaluating it for the presence of HIV. The NAT also helps determine the levels of HIV present in the blood. The NAT helps diagnose HIV earlier than the other tests, which is why it is preferred more than the different testing methods.
Rapid HIV Test FAQs
Early detection of HIV is beneficial for those who work in high-risk environments. It helps develop a treatment plan that could prevent complications and infections and provide years of healthy living. If left untreated, HIV can cause life-threatening health problems. Early diagnosis also alerts a person to avoid high-risk behaviour that spreads the disease to others.
Nucleic Acid Amplification Testing (NAAT) is the most preferred method. It involves taking a blood sample and evaluating it for the presence of HIV RNA. It also determines the levels of HIV present in the blood. It also helps to diagnose HIV earlier.
A HIV Test in Italy costs on average 35 Euros. (information based on our data as of September 2022)
