ur guide to live
Mar 16, 2011
dr . i wish to have your advise as how much time (estimated) do i have to start with meds as with ur experience till date my reports are as below.
First test. Apil/2010 cd4 730 CD4% 27.75 PVL RNA- 105 Second Test. December/2010 cd4 1090 CD4% 26.55 PVL 95
How often do u think i need to get my cd4 done as i am worried as i have heard people die very soon with hiv. and i wish to live with a lot of responsibility on me for my family. Is there any way i can live for long. I am from Burma. My main question is do i have enough time to start with meds and can i live long enough to my 55's as i am 33 now. Help help help help help help help help...

Your numbers are great. I would just keep going to the doctor every three months for testing and take care of yourself. Avoid exposing yourself to sexually transmitted diseases, eat and sleep well, and try to manage your anxiety and stress by doing things you love. Many people live healthy and need no medications for years, but they still should see a doctor every few months to ensure that your CD4 cells have not gone down below 350-500 cells per cc.
