Starting Treatment

May 6, 2004

I just talked to Dr. Kramer from SF. He said that for the average person, who maintains good health and exercise, won't have to take meds for about 8 years. He said that it will take around 8 years for the avg person's t-cells to drop to about 350. Is this true? I hear from people on this site that they start like 1 year after contracting HIV. I'm confused, please help. Thanks.

Response from Dr. Young

Dr Kramer is correct. BY
