Your blood tests

The blood tests are the most important part of your medical supervision. Beside any health problems you might have, the blood tests are what your internist considers most when it comes to advising you when to start withbloedtest medications. If you already use medications, your blood tests will tell you:

  • if your pills are effectively suppressing your virus;
  • if your pills are causing side effects that you have not noticed yourself;
  • if you need to switch to other pills.

Normally you have blood tests done once every three to six months. That means that you will go to the blood lab in hospital to have your blood drawn. Some people with HIV get tested two or three weeks before their consultation, so that they can hear the results during the consultation. Others find it more practical to go hospital just one time. They will hear their results later by telephone or by e-mail, or they will get the result the next time they have an appointment in hospital.
