In 2009,detected. cd4 is now 640, when I have to start meds , subhash.

Response from Dr. Young

Hello Subhash and thanks for posting.

Here in the US, HIV treatment is recommended for all positive people.

Elsewhere, the usual recommendation is to start treatment when CD4 counts are below either 500 or 350. If you have HIV-related symptoms, treatment is recommended irrespective of CD4 count in many locales.

For more information about "when to start", please scan other posts in this Forum.

I hope that helps. BY
