I have been HIV pos now for 18yrs without any symtoms at all. My viral load fluctuates from 20000-52000,and my CD4 from 360-199, Presently the viral load has been on a incline,and the cd4 has been dropping.My Doc suggested i may need to start on something in the near future.What is your take?
Response from Dr. Young
If your CD4 count reproducibly is at or near 200, then there is little debate. Consider starting therapy. BY
Wondering should I be on meds...new to everything.
