What is the difference between AIDS and HIV?

Dubai, United Arab Emirates (CNN) – Did you know that AIDS is different from the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)?

The official account of the “Health Project”, one of the initiatives of the Gulf Health Council, tweeted on Twitter that AIDS is a disease that weakens and paralyzes the immune system and can affect the body if left untreated.

In the case of HIV, it affects the white blood cells in the body that are responsible for protection, which can lead to infection.

Here is the difference between AIDS and HIV:

AIDS: Symptoms appear mainly as a result of damage to the patient’s immune system

Immune Deficiency Virus: You may not have any symptoms, and if so, they may be flu-like symptoms

  • Controlling

AIDS: Delay in diagnosing the disease worsens the disease and makes it difficult to control its symptoms

Immune Deficiency Virus: Symptoms of the disease can be controlled by early detection and treatment

  • Impact on the patient’s life

AIDS: If not treated properly, a person can die within 3 years

Immune Deficiency Virus: The patient can live longer while maintaining regular medication

The tweet confirmed that a person can be infected with AIDS only if they have HIV, that it has not been treated, and that a person without AIDS can be infected with HIV.
