Implication of Changes
Jan 30, 2006

I was infected in April, 2005.

My September lab results were T-Cell 841, 27.6% and Viral Load was 214,000.

Four months later in January the T-Cell count was 522, 34% and Viral Load 49,717.

I'm a 56 year old white male.

Any insight on what is happening?

Thanks a lot!

Response from Dr. Young

Thanks for your post.

I can't be sure, but assuming that your health was good for both tests, you're seeing a somewhat larger variation in the tests than average, but your numbers in aggregate seem better in January than previous.

Good luck, BY
