Blood Matters

by Derek Thaczuk



Many of us can’t stand the sight of blood or needles. But if you’re living with HIV, blood tests are an important tool for keeping you healthy. Here we make it easy to understand the important parts of your lab tests—what they do, what they mean and what you and your doctor can do to keep you healthy.


4 = the number of times per year you should have lab work done if you’re on HIV medication (two times per year if you’re not)
