please help do i need treatment
Jan 5, 2004

i am a 45 yr old female with a cd4 of 168 an unsure of my viral load my doc is telling me i dont need treatment yet is this wrong

Response from Dr. Pierone

Yes, it sounds wrong. Find out why your doctor thinks you are not ready, then get a second opinion. A CD4 count of less than 200 is accepted by just about everyone as reason for antiretroviral treatment. Good luck!
