Finally, the virus will be overwhelmed in CD4 cells and your body is not to protect against disease and infection. Once your body is the CD4 cell count below 200 per cubic millimeter of blood and / or opportunistic infections, weaken your immune system will be diagnosed with AIDS (acquired immunodeficiency syndrome). The symptoms of HIV infection, depending on which phase is the only HIV test can tell if you have a disease.
Although infection is gradually think about your body, most people infected with HIV are asymptomatic. Just the fact that the HIV test can tell with certainty whether they were infected.
