Blood work concerns
Apr 17, 2010
Hi, As a med-taking, long-term survivor of 19 years, my latest bloodwork is of slight concern. My Cd4 is 780 @ 25.6% and my viral load is 85. My T-cells have been in the 700-800's throughout this ordeal, and my viral load has been <50 for many years. However, this past year, I've been maintaining 50-85. Should I be concerned about this? My doctor doesn't seem to be concerned. Thanks for your response!

I understand your concern, but also agree with your doctor. Time is definitely on your side. Given your excellent CD4 count (and therefore immune system), I don't think this indicates a failure of your regimen.
