AIDS (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome) is a diagnosis given to someone who is HIV+ when they meet certain clinical criteria.

There are a combination of factors taken into account before issuing an AIDS diagnosis. Most commonly, when an HIV+ person's CD4 count reaches less than 200 copies per µL of blood, an AIDS diagnosis will be issued.

People with advanced HIV infection are at risk for developing infections that are not found in those with normal functioning immune systems. These infections are commonly referred to as "opportunistic infections." If someone is HIV+ and there cd4 count is above 200, but they have developed an opportunistic infection, it is considered an "AIDS defining" illness.
People with AIDS can have any of the following:
  • Fever that lasts longer than one month
  • Weight loss
  • Extreme tiredness
  • Diarrhoea for longer than one month
  • Swollen lymph glands
  • Unclear thinking
  • No sense of balance

If any of the above symptoms occur it's extremely important to see your doctor and be tested for AIDS (blood test.) The sooner one is diagnosed the sooner treatment can begin.
