"I would also like to let you know that there are only four situations where your test results would be inaccurate. These four situations are:
1. If you are on treatment for Hep C
2. If you are on treatment for cancer (chemotherapy)
3. If you are on P.E.P. treatment for HIV.
4. If you have been diagnosed with other immunodeficiency diseases"


What is the meaning of number 4?

Hello and thank you for contacting AIDS Vancouver with your question.

It sounds like you are confused about how being diagnosed with other immunodeficiency diseases could affect test results.

To start with, usually immunodeficiency diseases are diagnosed very early in life, such as at birth. So most people who have one already know that they do. However, if you think that this might apply to you we recommend partnering up with your healthcare provider.

If you have any other questions please don't hesitate to post again!
