HIV Low Platelets
Feb 3, 2008
Ive also Heard DDI is and effective treatment? I have established through a Hemotogist that I have anti-bodies attaching themselves to my platetlets thru a special blood test. He established that my body is producing the platlets and my imunne system is reacting adversly to them. My count is 13. Should I continue anti-virals? Im undetectable and CD-4 is 780. Im more worried about bleeding to death. What do you suggest?
Response from Dr. Holodniy
I would probably recommend remaining on HIV treatment. I don't think enough is known whether ddI would have any further effect. Again, the other medication interventions I suggested earlier should be discussed with your hematologist.
