When to begin treatment
Oct 18, 2006

My CD-4 is down to 259 and V/L fluctuates around 10k. Should I be considering treatment?

Response from Dr. Wohl

I would, especially if the CD4 cell count has been dropping steady over a short period of time. Accumulating data are supporting the initiation of HIV therapy at CD4 cell counts above 350.

There are some good options for initial therapy for those living in resource rich nations.
