autoimmune diseases

Can autoimmune diseases like arthritis affect the results? People with these issues do not have deficiencies but could it affect antibody results at 3 months due to an overactive immune system?

Hi there, There is no evidence to suggest that arthritis or other similar autoimmune diseases could interfere with the results of the BioSURE HIV Self Test. Your immune system will still produce antibodies in response to the virus, if you come into contact with it. I hope this helps. Kindest regards, Becky
