Good blood results, how to keep them that way?
May 20, 2012
I was diagnosed HIV positive 2 weeks ago, and have probably had it for no more than about 6 months. My first blood test results came back yesterday, Viral Load is about 580 and CD4 count is around 750. I understand these are good numbers, and my doctor said I could be looking at 5 or even 10 years before I need to start treatment.
I want to know what I can be doing to keep my counts good, I have now started taking 200mcg of selenium, along with my normal multivitamins which also includes zinc. I do exercise regularly and was training to run a 10k before my diagnosis, and am now getting back into my training. Will exercise and supplements help keep my counts good, and is there anything else I can do?

No, I think you have covered it. Keep up the good work.
