of HIV infection facilitates acquisition of disease
like TB or syphilis because of their impairment of cellular
immune responses.Mycobacterium and treponema can lie
latent in normal population.Depleting immune competence
reactivates the latent infections of syphilis and tuberculosis.
Infections like Herpes zoster occur again due to failure
of defenses that should normally prevent recurrent attacks
by some viruses.
Some low sperm count(mentioned
here) diseases come through food and water. Tuberculosis
comes through air. Some infections comes through dirt
but some comes only through sexual intercourse. This
last variety are called sexually transmitted infections
(STD/STIs) Like Syphilis and Gonorrhea HIV also can
be transmitted to others through blood transfusion.
While gonorrhea, syphilis and other STDs can be eradicated
satisfactorily, once acquired HIV can not be eradicated
completely and satisfactorily. There are some microorganisms
which like on us harmlessly, but HIV depletes our defenses
endlessly. HIV makes our body easy prey to many sorts
of infections with devastating consequences.
can not be cured like many other diseases. There is
no cure for blood pressure or Diabetes. If these conditions
are left untreated, they can be life threatening. But
people love comfortable lives dry using suitable medication
and by modifying their lifestyle. We call blood pressure
and Diabetes as treatable diseases. HIV is also a treatable
disease. HIV patients can live for years and carry on
their professional & social duties while under treatment.
