|Tx failure with induced diabetes
Dec 17, 1999
I have been living with HIV for 9 years with no success with multiple drug regimens, diabetes has become a factor in the last two years. At present, I am not on any aids drugs, my viral load load is 1 million and CD4 is 90. I take humilin r and u injections BID. My diabetes is not under control. My last PI regiment was agenerase-sustiva.
What should I do next?

I think it will take some thoughtful review of your previous treatment regimens, in addition to some resistance testing to formulate a plan. An effective regimen will require a minimum of 4-5 drugs to get that viral load under control. Undoubtably, this will require protease inhibitors, which may affect your diabetes. MH
