Response from Mr. Vergel
I am not sure where you live, but in the United States our DHHS treatment guidelines recommend HIV treatment for those with CD4 cells at 500 or below. Yours are above that. But remember that, assuming that you have a way to get medications paid for, the decision of starting treatment is a personal one. Some people start treatment earlier based on their own judgement after discussions with their physician.
