Brief Answer: HIV result Detailed Answer: Hello, Welcome to healthcare magic. Do not go by the figures. In the test report they would have mentioned reactive or non-reactive or positive or negative. If it is non reactive or negative that means you do not have HIV, even if there is an increase from 0.05 to 0.13. Hope I have answered your query. If you have any clarifications I will be happy to help. Take care.
