The benefits to being tested for HIV. Test results can provide peace of mind by simply being reassured that you are not infected. In addition, infected individuals can benefit from medications that delay or prevent AIDS and other serious infections. Infected persons have the opportunity to have a complete medical checkup, including tests of the immune system, to help their health care providers recommend the best health care.
The benefits of Hepatitis C testing begins by providing patients with information about their hepatitis C status, consequences of diagnosis and strategies to prevent transmission of HCV to or from others. Testing allows individuals to determine their hepatitis C status, whether positive or negative, and with the appropriate services and support, to be able to respond accordingly. A person given a diagnosis of hepatitis C can access information and support as well as treatments that offers improved health and an increasingly better chance of cure. People diagnosed with hepatitis C are also often able to cope better with the symptoms and illness of hepatitis C by improving their general physical health.
Remember free confidential testing available at the Fall 2013 Health & Wellness Screening on Wednesday, September 25, 2013.
