What is HIV?


HIV (the human immunodeficiency virus) is a serious viral infection that is spread through body fluids, including through sexual intercourse, and this includes vaginal, anal and sometimes oral sex. HIV can also be spread by needle stick contamination, by sharing needles, receiving surgical treatment in foreign countries (where sterilization of equipment may not meet the standards of developed countries) and sometimes it can be passed from the mother to a child during the birth process or through breast feeding.

HIV is found in the bodily fluids of an infected person which includes semen, vaginal and anal fluids, blood and breast milk. HIV cannot be transmitted through sweat or urine. It thrives inside a persons body, however does not survive long outside the body.

What are the symptoms of HIV?


Not everyone that is infected by HIV will show signs or symptoms of the infection. At first individuals may experience flu-like symptoms, these can include:

  • diarrhoea
  • headaches
  • fatigue
  • sore throat
  • muscle aches and pains

If these symptoms do occur they can subside for a number of years and the HIV can go undetected in the body, but during this time the virus will multiply and can be passed on to other people.

 

What's the big deal with HIV?


If left alone and not managed or treated with antiviral tablets, the infection can lead on to a condition called AIDS (acquired immunodeficiency syndrome), where the immune system becomes weakened and this could eventually lead to life threatening infections and even cancers.

AIDS is the last and final stage of the HIV infection; this is when your body can no longer fight the infection.

However, if caught early through testing, with the correct antiviral medication, most people with HIV will not go on to develop AIDS.

Around 20% of people living in the UK with HIV are thought to be undiagnosed and are unaware that they are carrying the infection. This increases the risk to their partners and themselves of developing serious ill-health problems.

If you have have had sex with someone who may be HIV positive you can reduce your chances of infection by starting a PEP (post-exposure prophylaxis) treatment within 72 hours of exposure to the virus. You will need to attend your local A&E department for this treatment.

HIV home testing


A discreet Test kit is provided simply at home & sample then forwarded to the laboratory using our self addressed envelope.

If you think you have been exposed to the risk of HIV then you should get tested immediately.

TESTD™ offers the latest in HIV testing technology. If you are generally concerned for your health and would like total peace of mind we offer a next day 5th Generation HIV Duo test. This is the most advanced method of testing for HIV and can be done from day 28 onwards following a potential exposure.

The 5th generation HIV Duo test looks for both antibodies and the p24 antigen for HIV and is incredibly accurate (over 99.9% sensitivity).

Please note that it is possible to test for HIV from day 10 after a potential exposure by taking an early detection screen, however it should always be followed up with a 28 day HIV Duo test.

The hayfever injection – help for severe sufferers

Severe hayfever symptoms can ruin peoples’ summers and have a detrimental effect on quality of life and ability to work optimally.

Certain parts of the UK are particularly affected by pollens and allergens likely to give severe symptoms, with the most likely culprits being a mixture of flower and tree pollen such as silver birch and rape seed.

If you have severe symptoms that fail to respond to other treatments, such as oral antihistamine medications, topical eye drops and so on, it is possible to request an appointment to discuss the hayfever injection at our clinics in Nottingham, Derby, Leicester, Sheffield, Leeds and Watford.

The hayfever injection is a corticosteroid injection which has anti-inflammatory properties. It suppresses the immune system and stops the natural pollen response from going ‘haywire’. This is the same medication given by doctors regularly for tennis elbow, various ligament and muscular strains, osteoarthritis and other joint conditions.

As with all injected medications, and in line with good medical practice, the doctor will undertake a careful risk assessment to make sure that you are a good candidate for treatment, and will explain the potential side effects and likely benefits in detail.

In our twenty-year experience of administering the hayfever injection, we have seen virtually nothing in the way of even mild ‘side effects’ with two people reporting a dimpling of the skin at the site of the injection (the buttock).

This dimpling is uncommon, however patients are always advised that it may occur and like all administered medications, the risks of any treatment must be balanced against the potential benefit of the treatment given.

Devi Shetty’s model for affordable healthcare


On the 26th March 2019 Bloomberg Businessweek published an article entitled, "The World’s Cheapest Hospital has to Get Even Cheaper”, which describes one of India’s largest private hospital chain's - Narayana Health - response to Modicare, a signature initiative by Prime Minister Narendra Modi to provide basic healthcare for 500m of India’s poorest.
 
Devi Shetty, a world-renowned cardiac surgeon and chairman of Narayana Health, is up for the task. Since Shetty founded Narayana in 2000 it has grown to become a large multi-speciality hospital chain, comprising 31 state-of-the-art tertiary hospitals across 19 cities, employing 16,000 and each year treating over 2.5m patients across more than 30 medical specialities. Shetty’s mission is to provide high quality, affordable healthcare services to the broader population in India and he is convinced that quality and low-cost healthcare are not mutually exclusive. In conjunction with the state of Karnataka, Shetty has created a health insurance plan, which has enrolled some 3m poor people at an annual premium of about US$2.6. More than half of Narayana’s cardiac operations are performed on patients too poor to afford the full cost. In addition to the insurance scheme free or subsidized inpatient care is achieved through philanthropy and a cross-subsidy model, in which higher-income patients pay more for nonclinical amenities, such as private recovery rooms. Since the total charges are still far below the cost of comparable services at other private Indian hospitals, Narayana Health remains an attractive option for such consumers. Narayana Health’s business model is sustainable because of its ability to attract so many patients who can pay full price.  The Wall Street Journal has dubbed Shetty, The Henry Ford of Heart Surgery because he applies assembly line concepts to surgery in order to optimize productivity, minimize costs and leverage economies of scale. Because of these innovations the average cost of open-heart surgery, as reported by Narayana Health, is less than US$2,000. The same procedure at a US research hospital typically costs more than US$100,000.
 
Since 2012 HealthPad has worked closely with Devi Shetty. We published our first Commentary about Narayana Health and Devi Shetty’s model for affordable quality healthcare in 2013 and in subsequent years published two more. Shetty and his fellow senior surgeons have contributed over 700 videos to HealthPad’s  content library, which address FAQs across 11 clinical pathways. Further, Narayana’s clinicians have featured in HealthPad Commentaries on Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD),  Diabetes and Kidney Disease and Cardiovascular Disease.  Because of the large and growing international interest in Shetty’s alternative model for affordable healthcare we re-publish lightly edited versions of HealthPad’s three Commentaries about Narayana Health.
