US doctors, nurses, nurses don’t need to take a ‘vitamin D test’ to diagnose HIV virus
A doctor who was diagnosed with HIV and then had to stop caring for his mother, whose immune system has been weakened by the virus, may need a vitamin D supplement, a US medical journal said.
A report in the American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine said doctors and nurses could not have been more wrong in their diagnoses.
The study looked at the care of two HIV-positive adults who received a vitamin d3 dose at the same time.
One was tested positive for HIV and the other did not.
The two had the same symptoms but the two had different levels of vitamin D in their blood.
The authors of the study said they could not rule out the possibility that vitamin D levels in their system had changed as they got older.
The researchers said the vitamin D was important, but it was not enough to diagnose the illness.
They said a higher dose of vitamin d2 could have been enough.
They also said a vitamin level should not be used as a way to determine whether someone has HIV infection.
In their report, the authors said they did not recommend the vitamin d supplement but they did note that it was a very important factor in determining whether someone should take a test to rule out HIV infection and whether a doctor should prescribe a vitamin supplement.
“The vitamin D supplementation has shown promise in diagnosing HIV infection in older adults, but there is no proven evidence that it is as effective in older people as the oral vitamin D3 is in younger adults,” they wrote.
“Therefore, the vitamin supplements used in clinical trials of oral vitamin d 3 are recommended to be used in younger people for testing.”
The study also found that vitamin d supplementation was not needed to diagnose people with HIV infection who were already infected.
It said that a test that showed the person’s serum level of vitamin a to be less than or equal to 1.3 micrograms per deciliter was not required to rule them out of HIV infection, but the person needed to be tested for HIV infection at least once.
The authors said a recent study by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention showed that only 12% of people with diagnosed HIV infection are HIV positive.
