When to start?
Dec 21, 2003

My labs have had a steady graph up for VL and down for CD4. They are currently: 80,000 for VL and 478 for CD4. The doc is encouraging me to start treatment. What is a good source of pro/con on this?

Response from Dr. Young

There's no clear right or wrong answer about when to start-- though I would tend to recommend deferring initiation with your labs.

I'd surf the "when to start treatment" category of this forum for questions and answers on this issue.

Good luck, BY
