Hi welcome to health care magic........
HIV MEIA or ELISA both are equally effective tests.
Iron tonics do not affect the results of the test.
HIV ELISA is commonly done . you can repeat the test after 6 months if you have been exposed to any high risk behaviour.
If positive on ELISA , the confirmatory test is western blot test.
