ANDIn Portugal, the major problem of HIV/AIDS is late diagnosis. There may be symptoms, but they often go unnoticed or underestimated by patients, who arrive at the emergency room with complaints of flu.
Initially, AIDS may progress silently. And it is those patients who are infected and do not yet know it who transmit the infection the most to other people with whom they have sexual contact. Indeed, it is during this period that the virus settles, begins to invade and destroy the lymphocytes, cells responsible for our defenses, and to multiply.
According to the SNS24, after contracting the infection, there may be symptoms such as:
- Inflamed glands in the neck and groin.
At a more advanced stage, the following events may occur:
- Rapid weight loss;
- serious infections;
- prolonged diarrhea;
- Lesions of the mouth, anus or genitals;
- Memory loss;
- Other neurological disorders.
