In an ideal world, if cost was no object, which bloods and other diagnostic tests should I have on an annual basis to monitor my condition?
As exhaustive and complete a list of tests as possible would be much appreciated - or if you could direct me to a website that lists them I would be very grateful.
Thanks very much Dr Holodniy

The usual battery of tests includes: CD4 count/percent, HIV viral load, standard blood counts (white, red blood cells, platelets), Chemistry panel including lipid panel (total, LDL, and HDL cholesterol, tryglycerides), liver panel (liver enzymes such ALT, AST). Other tests are ordered according to need (hepatitis panels, thyroid hormones, etc).
