Response from Dr. Young

Thanks for your follow up.

If you're able and willing to take medications, current treatment guidelines (all over the world) recommend considering treatment when CD4 counts are below 350.

I'm don't understand the precise reasons why your doctors don't feel that this is needed in your case; I'd ask them why.

If you were my patient, I'd would recommend starting treatment.

Be well, BY
