If somone has a v.l of 40000 withcd4's of 800 has been infected for 10 years and asymptomatic would treatment be neccesary?

Thanks for your question.
Currrent guidelines and clinical opinion do not recommend starting therapy in persons with CD4 counts as high as yours. This does not imply that there might not be some benefits to therapy, but that the consideration to start needs to understand the complicated balance between the benefits and risks of therapy. BY
