Response from Dr. McGovern

Your partner should begin feeling better on his HIV medications. If his fatigue continues, there are many causes to be considered. One is hepatitis C, which causes liver disease and often accompanying fatigue. He should have monitoring of his CD4 counts, HIV RNA, CBC and liver function tests while on therapy. He should also have a HCV RNA and genotype done to see how high his viral level is.
