I have never deal with so many #`s in my life, please doc , I am always nervous and anxious about this stuff!!

Thank you


Response from Dr. Young

Hello Daylet,

No need to be nervous. Your CD4 percentage is *normal*! That's a very good thing indeed, and does not indicate in any way that there's a problem with drug resistance.

Be well, BY
