Recently tested cd4 count is 800..not on any meds ...should I be taking something?

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for posting.


Current US and global treatment guidelines recommend HIV medication treatment for all people living with HIV, including those, like you, with normal CD4 counts or those who are not experiencing symptoms. I strongly agree with this recommendation, and offer treatment to all of my clinic patients.


Change to Triumeq?!
