Too Much Of A Good Thing?
Dec 21, 2003
At the time I was first diagnosed with HIV (July '02), my VL was 10,000 and my t-cells were 1,068. I was prescribed a 3-in-1 and within one month month I was undetectable.
After about 5-6 mos. of treatment, my physician put me on a strategic therapy interruption. Since that time, my t-cell counts have gone from 1,068 to 1,357 to 1,500 and at the last test, they were at 1,768. My VL remains undetectable.
I have never heard anyone report such high numbers, and my doctor claims that - while unusual - I have nothing to worry about.
Is this a cause celebre?

Pretty amazing. I'd like to hear back when you get followup numbers.
