    Evaluating your health status

    4 stages in the evolution of an HIV infection

    The health-care provider that announced your HIV result likely suggested that you begin a regular medical follow-up specific to HIV. An HIV check-up will permit you to evaluate (in consort with your physician) your stage of infection and the overall health of your immune system.

    In an attempt to evaluate your global health status, your physician will take a complete medical history (pertaining to your previous and current state of health) followed by a complete medical examination and a battery of laboratory tests. (please refer to the section What are CD4 cells? and What is the viral load?) Depending on your previous and/or current state of health and age, your physician may also request that you undergo supplementary evaluations (x-rays, ECG, nutritional evaluation, etc.).

    The combination of your physical examination and your laboratory results will permit you and your physician to evaluate the stage of your HIV infection. There are generally 4 stages that are described (these stages are not rigid, and patients may be at different points of their infection at different stages):

    • Primo-infection
    • Seropositive without symptoms
    • Seropositive with symptoms
    • AIDS
