Welcome


Welcome to the POZ/AIDSmeds Community Forums, a round-the-clock discussion area for people with HIV/AIDS, their friends/family/caregivers, and others concerned about HIV/AIDS.  Click on the links below to browse our various forums; scroll down for a glance at the most recent posts; or join in the conversation yourself by registering on the left side of this page.

Privacy Warning:  Please realize that these forums are open to all, and are fully searchable via Google and other search engines. If you are HIV positive and disclose this in our forums, then it is almost the same thing as telling the whole world (or at least the World Wide Web). If this concerns you, then do not use a username or avatar that are self-identifying in any way. We do not allow the deletion of anything you post in these forums, so think before you post.

  • The information shared in these forums, by moderators and members, is designed to complement, not replace, the relationship between an individual and his/her own physician.

  • All members of these forums are, by default, not considered to be licensed medical providers. If otherwise, users must clearly define themselves as such.

  • Forums members must behave at all times with respect and honesty. Posting guidelines, including time-out and banning policies, have been established by the moderators of these forums. Click here for “Am I Infected?” posting guidelines. Click here for posting guidelines pertaining to all other POZ/AIDSmeds community forums.

  • We ask all forums members to provide references for health/medical/scientific information they provide, when it is not a personal experience being discussed. Please provide hyperlinks with full URLs or full citations of published works not available via the Internet. Additionally, all forums members must post information which are true and correct to their knowledge.

  • Product advertisement—including links; banners; editorial content; and clinical trial, study or survey participation—is strictly prohibited by forums members unless permission has been secured from POZ.

You might want to read a site, before posting about it.  It appears to be the site of one person and I can't help notice the promotion of certain brands of supplements.  Plus, all the symptoms that are listed can have various causes and none of this is based on anything more, than the opinion of the writer. They provide no proof, nothing peer-reviewed, in short, it's an opinion column and nothing more.

The column is also dated May of 2007, so no news here.

Came here to say exactly the same thing. It's suspect at best, ESPECIALLY without references. In fact, it's general enough that anyone - even those who are going through seroconversion, flu or even depression would match most of the symptoms described on that site.

This thread has nothing to do with hiv so I've removed it from the Living forum - and put it here in OT because I really didn't know what to do with it other than perhaps toss it in the trash. The last thing we need around here is some hypochondriacs blog. ::)

HIV is certainly character-building. It's made me see all of the shallow things we cling to, like ego and vanity. Of course, I'd rather have a few more T-cells and a little less character. Randy Shilts
