How long does it take for a HIV test result to come back?

Depends on type

Hiv
An HIV test can be done instantly in the doctor's office (results are not as reliable), or it can be done in a regular lab. Usually not more than 2-3 days. However, many labs "batch" test -- meaning they only test for certain analytes once per week or every 3 days. So, maybe that is the delay...

How long does a urine alcohol test result take to come back from the lab?

Depends

Urine
The test itself can be done in less than one day. However the lab may not run the test everyday and there may be delays in transport of the specimen to the lab and in reporting the results. In general your doctor should get the results in 2-5 days.

Test positive for Celiacs if you have been on a gluten free diet for 2 months? Is it worth it to go back on gluten to get a positive test result?

No

Gluten
Your celiac problem is not going to go away so why would you want to make yourself sick again? Remember that some people may not totally recover until after several months off gluten product. However if your symptoms do not improve after 3 or 4 months, you need to evaluate the diagnosis or consider another diagnosis since the presence of celiac does not preclude other illnesses.

Positive test result for TB My husband got a job offer and had to get a TB test. He went back to get the results and the spot is slightly red and barely over 10 mm. He is convinced that the results are positive and as a result he won't get the job. The

Hello.

Hello. You can have an overlying are of redness, that doesn't mean the test is positive. I always used the ball point pen method to read the TB test. You gently move the pen back and forth to determine where there is underlying induration. Being PPD positive and having tuberculosis are two very different things. Please have him talk to the person who administered the test to find out the result. You are checking for inducation and not color. Take care.

How long does it take for hair to grow back after waxing?

Weeks to Months

Electrolysis
Our hair follicles are all on different cycles. That is, some hair will return within a few weeks, but additional "sets" of hair will come in over additional weeks. These differing cycles is the reason that people need multiple treatment of electrolysis. So again, some hair will return in a few weeks, with additional growth over the ensuing months.
