Not necessarily. Having HIV does not automatically mean you will get other health conditions (sometimes called ‘co-infections’). But you are more at risk of developing them if you do not look after yourself. It’s important to take your antiretroviral treatment and to have a healthy lifestyle.
If you have HIV, your doctor will look for signs of other health conditions in your check-ups. They can also give you more information about conditions that are linked to HIV that will help you make sense of it all.
