How do things look?

Mar 22, 2008

Hello there!

So i have been diagnosed positive in 11/07 and currently on no medication. I had my first set of labs done in 12/07 those numbers were...cd4-419, vl 25,200 (sorry i dont have percentages)...i just received my next labs taken this month (3/07) and those numbers were cd4-456, vl 7,410. Are these numbers promising? Or would you say that the change in these numbers aren't enough to say that anything is "improving."

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Although your numbers are "improved" from the first set, there is no real significant difference between them. That said, there are good numbers, and no HIV treatment is required at this point.
