no they have to do some test on ur blood thats the only way to find out

No.

Definitely you can tell by looking that there is something wrong with the hemoglobin count though. I always knew when they drew my blood if my count was better than last time or not.... And no, I'm not HIV positive, but used to looking at my blood being drawn.


Blue eyes
Not to my knowledge,the blood would have to be tested at the Lab.and then there is a time period before you get the results back . [Laboratory HIV blood testing Procedures ] is a site you can go to that will give you several sites on HIV blood testing information. Blue eyes

I don't think so, you see, HIV and AIDS are two totally different diagnoses. If someone tests positive for HIV, that just means they have been exposed to the virus and have antibodies in their blood stream. If someone has full blown AIDS then their immune system has broken down and they are going to catch every cold and flu and disease they get or have ever been exposed to.
Testing positive for the virus is different from having AIDS. That's why it was given two different names.

HIV is just a virus. Human Immunodeficiency Virus
AIDS is a disease. Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome

The two are treated with medicine differently.

Good luck

Yes you can, if you look real hard you can see the virus's eyes twinkling when the light hits its eyes.

No but you can taste it. HIV tastes kind of like grapes that fell on the floor and then were sat on by a fat woman.


Barbara B
not at all.

No, It can only be detected by blood work . They have that new test that is done in 20 min .

No, the blood has to be tested. You can't tell by looking at it.

NO; NEUF; NEIN. The tests for HIV-1/HIV-2 detect the presence of antibodies to the virus in your blood serum, not the presence of the virus per se. To actually SEE the virus, you'll need a scanning electron microscope. Want to see actual images of the HIV virus? Go to the following links:

I know that you're making fun of this issue; maybe you should employ your time doing other, more important things [like getting tested for HIV yourself]. I hope that this information has been of help to other, more mature users of this forum.

Yes, the persons blood glows bright red and if you squint you can see the red blood cells take the shape of the letters HIV kinda like alphabet soup.


Shortstuff13
No, the blood is tested in a special way.

Not by looking, but you can tell by the sudden change to foreboding incidental music as it's being drawn and/or taken away for analysis.
