Viral Load and CD4 count

Sep 9, 2012

I tested positive a month ago. My CD4 count was 409 and VL was 36 600. Should I start ARVs now or wait a while? I'm afraid that if I wait til my CD4 is at 350 I might get very sick.I'm not sick at the moment but have visible glands on my neck.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

I would recommend starting HIV treatment now.

Will HIV show up on another Titer test??
