Response from Dr. Young

Thanks for your post.

You can read many posts on this subject on this forum's "When to Start Treatment" category.

In brief, current national and international treatment guidelines recommend treatment if you have persistent, serious HIV symptoms, OR if your asymptomatic and your CD4 count is reproducibly below 350 cells.

Be well, BY
