From Brazil again.
Mar 22, 2005

Dear Doctors, in August/2004 my CD4 was 491 ,VL was 12,710; in January/2005 my CD4 was 476 ,VL was 153,000; in February/2005 my CD4 was 531 ,VL was 93,500. Should I start medication or not? My doctor suggested to wait and test again in three months. Im completely asymptomatic. Thank you for your help.

Response from Dr. Young

Since your feeling well and are asymptomatic, I'm in agreement with your doctors about waiting to start medications. Getting follow up labs in 3 months is exactly what I'd recommend at this point.

I hope this helps, good luck and good health. BY
