Wats the normal life expected these days. Though long question but i am sure u will rescue me on this. Great thanks to u

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Your CD4 count is in the normal range of people without infection and your viral load is very low. Thus, your immune system is doing a good job on its own in controlling the infection. It is hard to know how long this situation will be maintained. However, I would not recommend starting HIV treatment at this time.
