Whenever a forging organism enters the body, the white cells “soldiers” eradicate it. However, there are some microorganisms that are way to powerful for the human body to succeed in defeating.
One of these microorganisms is the HIV virus. This unnatural creation has some abilities that most of the viruses’ lack, such as the possibility to integrate its own genetic code into the genetic code of the host.
While the body is struggling to fight it, a series of effects called symptoms start to interfere with the normal functions of the body. These symptoms can differ from a metabolism to another and from a gender to another.
This is why, HIV symptoms in men can manifest in a different way than in female infected patients.
Men generally, have a faster metabolism than women; this is why they are less exposed to weight gain, or process alcohol a lot faster. HIV symptoms in men also manifest different. If women lose weight slower, man can experience weight loss faster, but to experience less head each seizures than female patients.
Without treatment, the HIV virus triggers AIDS faster in women than in men; but sometimes it can depend on the straight of the body before the infection. For instance, a non-smoking female, who does not drink alcohol as a habit, has a healthy diet and did not consumed drugs during her health period, is most likely to develop AIDS a lot slower than a man who has done all that.
Even though circumstantial and very depending on other factors, the HIV virus can cause the male body to experience diseases specific to the male gender, due to the low immunity of the organism.
There are not many differences between genders when contacting the virus. The first signals of an infection can be the same, both for men and women, even if the patients can experience it in different ways.
