Viral load

Dec 22, 2013

I am 35y/o. Positive since july 2012. December 2013 I have CD4 786 and viral load 34.000 . Do i need to start with theray? My frend with similar viral load and CD4 start with : darunavir,abacavirum,lamivudinum and norvir.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Your current CD4 count is in the normal range and your HIV viral load level is in the moderate range. Although there is no urgency to start, most experts today would recommend starting HIV treatment to get the viral load to undetectable and preserve immune system function. There are many HIV drugs available and several combinations are possible, including the combination you listed.
