HIV Treatment
Dec 17, 2002

I have HIV positive and I was wondering what I need to do to start treatment?

Response from Dr. Young

Thanks for your question.

Before starting therapy, it is best to learn as much as possible about your health status, using laboratory tests and discussion with your health care provider. After careful review of your options and the risks and benefits of particular approaches, your healthcare provider will give you an assessment of the best treatment approach.

Good luck, BY
