Brief Answer:
No need to worry

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for the query.

There is no need to worry as excessive burping and belching are not related to HIV and you have been tested negative for HIV. It would take around 6 to 8 weeks for the HIV to show any symptoms.

Loosing 3kgs is a matter of concern. It requires evaluation. As you have been to a doctor, I would like to know his diagnosis and treatment he gave you. The loss of weight depends on many factors like diet, malabsorption of food and physical activity.

So, be relaxed and do not worry regarding HIV.

Hope this answers your query. If any further questions, will be happy to help.

Hi, my name is Eva and my son (2) has Glucose galactose malabsorption. Do you know if digestive enzymes could help to ease this condition? I am also worried that in time he might have some renal or cardiovascular problems. So far he seems very healthy and is growing just fine on his fructose based diet. Thank you

Have had IBS in the past - as well as ischemic bowel. Most recently had violent attacks of abdomina bloating, pain, left side and then hard to liquid stool over 1/2 hour. This has happened 3 times in one week now. I am wondering if this could be Small Instestinal bacterial overgrowth or malabsorption.
