Thank you for your post.
Unless you're having clear HIV-related symptoms, most US- and EU-based physicians wouldn't recommend starting treatment until your CD4 count was below 350 cells. This might be particularly true in someone with such a low HIV viral load (with an average load of about 50,000). BY
