HIV Blood Transfusion Risk

Are you concerned about HIV blood transfusion risk. On the medical front, you will be told that clinical risk is insignificant. This may be true unless you were one of those who got HIV AIDS as a result of a transfusion. How should the several who got HIV in the past few years feel, insignificant?

More importantly, how would you feel if you knew there was an option. How would you feel to find out that there are hospitals, doctors and nurses that can provide care with out blood transfusions all together. How would you feel to find out the outcomes were better than those who got blood.

First, review the information on HIV blood transfusion risks.

Human Immunodeficiency Virus

Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) progresses into Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS). The progression of the disease is determined by GSH levels.

HIV is transmitted through sexual contact, sharing of HIV contaminated needles or accidental needle sticks and/or syringes, transfusion of blood components, exposure to HIV contaminated bodily fluids or blood. It can be passed from a mother to her infant.

Implementation of HIV NAT testing has resulted in a reduction to 1.8 HIV contaminated units per million. This may make it seem like the blood supply is safe with only 4 people a year at risk of getting HIV.

Yet some years there have been several reported Blood transfusion related HIV transmissions. How can this be? The risk is actually more than just 1.8 per million due to pooling and fractionalization.

Blood is transfused whole or divided into the following component.

  • red blood cells
  • white blood cells
  • platelets or thrombocytes
  • cryoprecipitated AHF

Although plasma derivatives are heat treated and or solvent detergent treated to kill certain viruses including HIV and hepatitis B and C, there is still a small risk.

  • Factor VIII Concentrate
  • Factor IX Concentrate
  • Anti-Inhibitor Coagulation Complex (AICC)
  • Albumin
  • Immune Globulins, including Rh Immune Globulin
  • Anti-Thrombin III Concentrate
  • Alpha 1-Proteinase Inhibitor Concentrate

HIV Blood Transfusion Risk

The viruses are transmitted mostly through sexual contact with an infected individual. Transmission from mother to infant occurs primarily through breastfeeding. What is the risk of the other viruses from transfusion of blood components and plasma derivatives?

Approximately 3.2 per thousand are infected. So although the risk of HIV is minimal, the combined risk of getting any disease from a transfusion is a bit more significant.

The Way to Make More GSH For Free

Glutathione has a high affinity for water. Simply put, if we are dehydrated our bodies may not make as much as they could. Or, what we do make may be less effective.

Usually there is something more than just being dehydrated. Often there is a condition called fluid and electrolyte imbalance, less than bodies needs. There is a simple, easy and inexpensive way to correct this, allowing your body to produce even more GSH.

The Water Cures Protocol really works. Give it a try today.

It is simple, easy, sustainable and affordable (the salt should cost less than $10 a year).

And like GSH, it will help with over 76 different diseases and conditions.
