HIV – Causes, Symptoms, and Treatment

Human Immunodeficiency Virus or commonly called HIV is a virus that affects the immune system by destroying the cells and its functionality. HIV is a progressive disease that debilitates the immune system and eventually results in the diagnosis of Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS). Though no medicine can cure HIV completely, one of the popular medicine to treat the symptoms is Atripla 600 mg. One pill of Atripla is a combination of three medicines- Efavirenz, Emtricitabine, and Tenofovir disoproxil fumarate.

Causes of HIV:

HIV spreads inside the body in such a way that the virus splits the inherent cryptogram of the cells, which are utilized by the immune system, especially the ‘CD4’ cells. Further, it uses the natural inherent matter to replicate. The body is able to create more of the ‘CD4’ cells, but HIV brings down the number of the ‘CD4’ cells to a shallow level, which stops proper functioning of the immune system.

  • HIV spreads in the body due to transmission of fluids like semen or blood. So, this virus can be transmitted through sexual intercourse too.
  • The risk of the transmission of HIV is also in case of sharing of needles while injecting illegal drugs.
  • HIV can transmit from a mother to the baby.
  • Blood transfusions also transmit HIV.

This virus grows internally and even damages the immune system. If the virus is not treated well in time, it can bring down the number of the ‘CD4 cells’ in the body, which may lead to dysfunctioning of the immune system.
