Help me to understand
Jan 11, 2009
Hi I found out I was HIV positive about a year ago and started ATRIPLA last sept. Within the month, my VL became undetectable (not sure what the numbers were before, but I wasn't undetectable) with a pretty low cd4 count (170).
Recently I had blood work done and after 3.5 months my Cd4 count is now 303 and my VL is <75. Can you tell me if i'm responding well to ATRIPLA. MY doctor told me she wants me to come in have some labs retaken. I'm just trying to understand whats going on with my body.
Thank You for you answer.
