Hi Nelson, I have been on TDF/FTC/EFV for about 6 months now and my numbers are doing well - latest CD4 just over 500, undetectable viral load. I was hoping to get back to scuba diving but I was wondering if diving can pose a health risk. Are there marine pathogens/parasites/bacteria that I should be wary of? Is it OK to get back to the sport?

Response from Mr. Vergel

Go for it. I see no reason to limit yourself.
