BK virus is present : In most people ie almost universal exposure and stays dormant in the lining of the bladder. From your medication list i assume you have had a kidney, or other organ, transplant. With the immunosuppression the virus can reactivate. Reducing the meds can help, but may lead to other more serious issues. Talk to your transplant team and make the safest plan. ...Read more
Adjust immune meds: We don't have much options when it comes to bk virus - it doesn't cause much robles except when it comes to transplants. The simplest solution most teams will consider attempting, is to adjust the medications used for immunosuppression - however, this will be weighed against the risk of the organ being rejected. Hope this explanation helps! ...Read more

The medications used purely for hbv would be adefovir or entecavir, and if there is concomitant HIV infection, lamivudine/emtricitabine/tenofovir. The ultimate choice will depend on you unique circumstances, and decided upon by your specialist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Low risk of Toxoplas: There is a very low risk that you could get toxoplasmosis. You can get toxoplasmosis by accidentally ingesting the parasite in contaminated cat feces, which can occur if you accidentally touch your hands to your mouth after cleaning a cat's litter box, or touching anything that has come into contact with cat feces; people are more likely to get [toxoplasmosis] from eating raw meat. ...Read more

+ gonorrhoeae DNA amplification test, but, neg. Amp RNA test(source urine). Do they have gonorrhoeae? Is one test more reliable?
Complicated: Although these tests are very sensitive there are false positive results because of the potential presence of other benign species of neisseria. If you had to compare the two it would be without much relevant data. Bacterial culture will provide both a definitive diagnosis and allow determination of antibiotic sensitivities. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Treat what?: Please resubmit with clarification.Get a more detailed answer ›
No: This is determined predominantly by antibody testing rather than by PCR for HIV RNA (This is an RNA virus). The latter test does not differentiate serotypes. Type 2 is very rare outside of Africa and seems more difficult to transmit. There are also numerous subtypes of both Types 1 & 2 and this becomes quite complex since this virus mutates continuously. ...Read more

Did DNA HIV tested negative after 21 days of possible exposure.45 days later I did urine culture and diagnosed with candida is this hiv?still stressed
HIV: If you did not have a positive test for HIV RNA by PCR after 21 days it is incredibly improbable that you have HIV disease (my philosophy is that nothing is impossible). Candidiasis? In a 24 year old man? Not likely, and if this question is coming from a woman this condition is so common with multiple predisposing factors that to attribute it to HIV is not realistic and the result of anxiety. ...Read more
Tested positive for hpv RNA rather than DNA, does that mean my immune system will not be able to clear the virus? Normal cytology...

Why would ALT elevate acutely with a virus? Was 36 early in month at physical and 74 later in month when sick? WBC normal. Urine 1+ occult blood.
Liver cell damage: Hepatitis viruses live inside the liver cell where they use the cell metabolic machinery to survive and reproduce until they exhaust the cell and fill it up. At that point the cell ruptures or disintegrates releasing its contents like ALT. Death of many cells means more ALT release and worse liver disease symptoms ...Read more
