Hello and thank you for your question,

Your thyroid condition is not going to affect your HIV status to the best of my knowledge. However if your were advised in your region to have re-testing at 6 months to be absolutely certain of your HIV status, then you may wish to speak to your doctor regarding your particular needs.

If you have other HIV related questions in the future, please contact the Helpline again.

All the best,

Marnelle
