Although there is no cure for HIV, treatment options can help people living with HIV live longer and healthier lives. In addition, some of those treatment options can even be simple enough to fit into your routine.
When you are talking to your healthcare provider, it is important to let them know your experience with your current treatment and if it is meeting your personal needs. Especially when you are re-engaging in treatment. These conversations can help you find the right treatment for you.
You can start treatment as soon as your healthcare provider (HCP) recommends it. Some treatments can even be started the same day that you are diagnosed.
HIV is a virus that can mutate or change. Some mutations that develop can lead to drug resistance. Once HIV drug resistance develops, medicines that previously controlled your HIV viral load may no longer work. This video helps explain ways that can help you avoid HIV drug resistance.
