When an HIV positive persons t-cell count becomes lower than 200, they are considered to have AIDS, or commonly referred to as "full-blown AIDS."

"Commonly referred to as full-blown AIDS" by those who do not have the sense to realize that there is no such thing as partially blown Aids.

No. Full blown AIDS is caused by the virus, HIV. Therefore, you have HIV before AIDS.

No, you can only have the HIV virus in order to get full-blown AIDS.

Yes he did have the hiv virus and full blown aids. Before his demise he participated in a walk for aids cause in which he just sat in a wheelchair while being pushed because he was too weak to walk.

when a person has HIV or full blown aids, it harms the immune system

No. Well, maybe. She has full blown AIDS. Sometimes.

Only if your partner has HIV or full blown AIDS. Something can't be created out of nothing.

An HIV patient diagnosed with bacillary angiomatosis is considered to have progressed to full-blown AIDS

HIV turns into AIDS when the infected persons CD4's drop to below 200 and an opportunistic infection is present. There is no such thing as partially blown AIDS making "full blown AIDS" a ridiculous statement - no matter if it was once common terminology . A positive person has either HIV or AIDS. With medical intervention the immune system can be restored and an infected person can live a long fulfilling life.

If you develop full blown AIDS, then you can get black spots from that.

people have different HIV progression it can be typical, rapid, or non progressors. HIV has three different stages acute, chronic and AIDS. AIDS is when your CD4 count is below 200

You get a blood test, if you have AIDS, you will know. First it starts as HIV. You can live well over ten years with HIV, then it transfers into full blown AIDS. AIDS is a very serious illness, one that would be known easily.

They are roughly the same thing , H.I.V is the early thing with the sign of it , Aids are later on, the final stage is full blown stage.

No. Thrush is a fungal infection unrelated to HIV. While persons with full blown AIDS may also have thrush it is not because they have HIV.

There is no such thing as full blown aids. A person infected with hiv either has HIV or AIDS. This is why you never hear people say partially blown AIDS AIDS means that the persons immune system has deteriorated until their CD4's have dropped below 200 and at least one opportunistic infection is present. This progression can be reversed with medicine. I would say that unless your taking your newborn to an orgy with AIDS patients, normal contact will not harm them.

The phrase "full blown AIDS" is medically inaccurate and is not used today. The appropriate terminology would be to simply say AIDS or AIDS diagnosis. Without access to medication a person may progress to an AIDS diagnosis after 10 years of sero-conversion. HIV does not necessarily develop to an AIDS diagnosis. New medications and healthy living can increase the immune function (T-Cells) and decrease the HIV viral load. With care and treatment people living with HIV can expect to live a normal life span.

Not necessarily. A person either has HIV or AIDS. There is no such thing as partially blown AIDS, so full blown AIDS is just as absurd no matter how commonly it is used. Secondly, If a person with AIDS is put on medication, their viral load can reach undetectable, and their CD4's go back up. There have been reports of HIV positive people with undetectable viral loads giving birth to HIV negative children. If your that concerned, why don't you just ask your sister?

Technically, they are the same things. HIV is what you have when you have more than 200 t cells still in your body. Once you have less than 200 t cells, you are classified as having AIDS. So technically, yes, AIDS is worse than HIV, as HIV is only the beginning stage.

that is called aids on your lip! hahahhahahahahaha Haha so Congrats! You dont have HIV but Full Blown AIDS!

HIV becomes AIDS when your immune system gets to be a certain weakness.

The term morbidity means illness. In this cause with HIV, it would mean all the conditions that would be seen with this virus including full blown AIDS.

The difference between a healthy person, someone with HIV, and someone with AIDS is determine by T-Cell counts. Depending on your level depends on where you fall.

There are several different blood tests which detect the presence of HIV. However, not all people who have HIV develop AIDS. HIV can be dormant for a long period of time, before it begins to cause the active problems that send a person into the full expression of AIDS (as an active disease). There are certain markers for what constitute actually having an active case of AIDS, but the line between where one crosses from being merely HIV-infected, and having a full-blown AIDS case is a bit of a fuzzy one.

The phrase "full blown AIDS" is medically inaccurate and is not used today. The appropriate terminology would be to simply say AIDS or AIDS diagnosis. AIDS is the syndrome caused by HIV and is the end stage of the disease. When a person receives an AIDS diagnosis the immune system is severely compromised. The patient is susceptible to infections which can be life threatening. The development of new medications can now slow the progression of HIV and prevent the development of AIDS. New medications can also increase immune function (T-cells) and reduce viral load.

You will go into full blown AIDS. You will find it harder and harder to fight off infections and diseases.
