Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) is similar to other viruses, but there is a key difference. The human body’s immune system can protect itself against most viruses. However HIV is an exception to the rule the human immune system can’t get rid of it. HIV can hide in our cells for long periods of time and it attacks T-cells or CD4 witch are a key part of our immune system used to fight infections and disease. HIV invades them, uses them to make copies of itself, and then eradicates them. HIV can destroy so many of the body’s T-cells and CD4 cells that it leaves our body defenseless against infections and diseases. Symptoms of HIV can include fever, chills, night sweats, sore through, and swollen lymph nodes. These can start showing up as early as two to four weeks after a person gets HIV. During this time period the HIV is also easier for the body to transfer to other people. When you are given an AIDS diagnosis due to a high viral load and low T-cell count, physicians normally start AIDS patient on highly active antiretroviral therapy otherwise known as (HAART), which is a strict regimen of extremely powerful medications to reduce viral load and raise T-cell levels in the body. When your T-cell count drops below 200 you will begin to develop infections witch normally wouldn't occur in a person with a healthy immune system.
