HIV Treatment Poses Risk for LGBTQ+ Community

Pride is celebrated every June in celebration of the LGBTQ+ community. However, Pride started out as a riot and not exactly a celebration of queer love and joy. The riots began at the Stonewall Inn and lasted six days with one goal in mind: allowing queer people to freely and openly express themselves. Since then, every June we celebrate LGBTQ+ Pride Month and remember those who fought for all of the liberties that queer Americans have today.

Side Effects to treating HIV & Hepatitis B

Recently, there have been advancements in the treatment of HIV/AIDS. Tenofovir disoproxil fumarate (TDF) is a drug that has proved to be effective, yet deadly. Doctors recommend lifelong treatment. In other words, all users of TDF are considered long term users. However, the drug has been linked to side effects such as high risk of liver cancer, kidney problems and osteopenia, a disease in which people experience bone weakness and loss of bone mass. In extreme cases, TDF usage can lead to portal hypertension which can turn into liver cancer if left untreated.

TDF oral pills used as treatment for HIV & Hepatitis B goes hand in hand with risk to liver cancer.
