Cd4 328 viral 233,000

Jul 11, 2009

I tested negative in December of 08 and positive in April 09 just got first labs back an I have tcell count of 328 an viral of 233,000 My doc retook labs to confirm this, my question is basically what should I do now? I was very positive attitude wise but now not so much, this is all new to me any help would be appreciated thanks.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Your doctor did the right thing in getting another set of labs. If those numbers are confirmed, I would recommend starting HIV treatment now. I am sure your doctor will come to the same conclusion.
