Acute HIV Infection
Jul 3, 2005
I am in the acute HIV infection phase and my viral load is above 500,000 copies. I have started Haart 2 weeks ago but viral load still above 500,000, does this mean a faster progression? Also I have been put on sustanon 250mg every 2weeks as my testosterone is very low and my body weight also. Should I be exercising, I am very fatigued at the moment? Will I still gain muscle mass if I dont exercise?

Unlikely, this viral load level, which will decrease both as a result of seroconversion and concomitant HAART will stay at that level for long. And so will not translate into faster progression. Left alone in the absence of treatment and if it were sustained, then the answer would be yes. Your symptoms will get better soon. Any exercise is helpful, both for mental and physical health. Unlikely much muscle will be gained without some form of exercise.
