Albuquerque Health Services
Co-infection of HIV and Hepatitis C can be extremely dangerous because the immune system is already weak. At UNM Truman Health Services, we can help you manage HIV and Hepatitis C simultaneously to avoid further progression of the virus.
How HIV Co-Infection Occurs
HIV is transmitted in very similar modes, including:
- Sharing needles
- Vaginal fluid
- Breast milk
For many, the symptoms of Hepatitis C are not noticeable. It is important to get tested for HIV regularly by a doctor, especially if you are already considered at risk.
