just diagnosed - med start time

Jun 19, 2014

Hi , i just diagnosed and am still uneducated regarding HIV .

my simple question ; should i start meds immediately or should i wait till particular CD4 count ..

Regards

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for posting.

If you're positive, I'd recommend starting treatment, irrespective of CD4 cell count. This is what the US, French, Chinese and other country's treatment guidelines recommend.

Starting this way has been shown to reduce risk of complications, risk of side effects of medications and lowers risk of death from HIV-related complications.
