HIV is scary and well-known, but with today's medicine many people can live relatively full lives with the HIV virus as long as it is caught early and treatment starts promptly. There are blood tests that can provide a definitive diagnosis of this infection, with the most common being the rapid HIV antibody test and the enzyme immunoassay (EIA) test. Both use blood, but the rapid HIV antibody tests will get you your results very quickly and usually within about 20 minutes. It generally takes about two weeks for the results of the enzyme immunoassay (EIA) test to be ready.
Chlamydia is a contagious and common sexually transmitted disease that can be fully cured, and usually without any issues, when it is diagnosed early and treatment is started promptly. A quick course of antibiotics is all that is necessary for treatment. Many people do not experience symptoms and the ones that do usually do not start experiencing them right away. Because of this regular screening for chlamydia in those who are sexually active, especially those with multiple partners, can help the ensure that if someone does contract this infection that it is treated right away so that complications can be avoided.
Gonorrhea is a common sexually transmitted disease and it can be fully cured. When it is caught and treated right away the majority of people will not have any complications. There are several different tests that can be done to detect this infection, including blood tests. The test can be done quickly and results are generally ready within an hour or so. In some cases, blood tests are combined with culture tests that will analyze body fluids from the infected area under a microscope. This is generally done in cases where the gonorrhea may be a type that is resistant to specific antibiotics.
Serum herpes simplex antibodies can be used to aid in the diagnosis of both herpes simplex virus one and herpes simplex virus two. The test will not detect the actual herpes virus, but it will be able to determine if the person was ever infected with genital or oral herpes. Genital herpes cannot be cured, but there are a variety of treatment available that can help to control the virus so that you have fewer outbreaks and other symptoms associated with the infection. This is important because knowing whether or not you have herpes will allow you to control your health and be able to avoid infecting others with the virus.
The blood test for syphilis is known as the rapid plasma regain (RPR) test and it looks for specific antibodies that are characteristic with this infection. This blood test is all that is needed to get a definitive diagnosis of syphilis. It is very important that syphilis be diagnosed in a timely manner because it is curable when caught and treated promptly. However, when syphilis is left untreated it can lead to potentially life-threatening complications, such as stroke, inflammation of the aorta, aneurysm, meningitis and an increased risk of contracting the HIV virus if exposed to it. It can also cause significant harm to an unborn child if contracted while pregnant.
Hepatitis C is a viral disease that is characterized by the liver becoming inflamed. There are two blood tests that are used to diagnose this condition, including: EIA assay is used to look for the antibody associated with this virus The hepatitis C RNA assay is used to look at the person's individual viral load In some cases, further blood work is done to see how much damage this virus has cause to liver and these tests may include albumin level, prothrombin time and liver function testing. It is recommended that everyone who was born in the United States between 1945 and 1965 be tested for the hepatitis C virus.
Hepatitis A can be detected by using a blood test that looks specifically for the associated antigen or antibody. This test can be performed if you have been to an area of the world that is known for hepatitis A infection, such as places where sanitary conditions are not common. If you have had the infection in the past or were exposed to someone else with the infection, it is wise to have your blood tested to determine if you were infected. This test may also be done if you already have hepatitis A and need your treatment to be monitored to ensure it is effective.
The hepatitis B surface antigen is a blood test that looks for the antibodies that are known to be associated with this type of hepatitis. If you have the antibodies, it means that you either have an active hepatitis B infection or that you have one in the past and have since recovered from it. It may also indicate that you have been vaccinated and that your body is indeed immune to this virus. If you have ever been exposed to hepatitis B, it is important to take a blood test and either rule out or confirm the diagnosis so that there is no risk of you passing the infection on.
