HIV Treatment

How We Treat HIV/AIDS

While HIV Remains incurable, our office is committed to providing the latest treatments and staying abreast of new research information as it becomes available. The methods we use to treat the condition today have been shown to effectively suppress the development of AIDS in those who presently have HIV. ART, also known as Antiretroviral Therapy, begins immediately upon the patient receiving a positive diagnosis and will continue throughout the patient’s lifetime. Treatment typically involves the administration of three different drugs from two out of five classes of drugs, with two coming from one class, and one from another.

This treatment process helps to maintain the strength of your immune system, helps protect you against other infections, protect s against treatment-resistant HIV, and even lowers the likelihood you’ll transmit HIV to other people. Some patients find it difficult to remain on this treatment program due to the potential side-effects, expense, or existing substance abuse programs. Potential Side-Effects Include:

  • Heart Disease
  • Nausea, Vomiting, Diarrhea
  • Weakened Bones
  • High Blood Sugar
  • Abnormal Cholesterol Levels
  • Trouble Sleeping
  • Nausea, Vomiting, Diarrhea
