New Labs Results

Aug 28, 2005

In May05 i tested positive for HIV at that point my t-cell count was 635 no VL was given at that time. I recently had my labs done and T-cells are 759 and VL at 564. My partner is Positive also and is now undetectable with meds. With my numbers should meds be considered to get the VL down?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

My recommendation would be NOT to start meds. Your immune system is in very good shape and there is no reason to start yet.
