My boyfried just found out he has Aides and KS. VL is 102k, t's only 51. Starting meds, but I'm also worried about the KS. He has spot all over his upper body. How good is his chances.
| Response from Dr. Henry
Many patients (but not all) with KS will experience improvement in the KS when effective HIV treatment is started. Effective treatment will generally decrease the HIV level to undetectable and result in an increase in the CD4 count. Those developments are key to securing a healthy future which is possible with a good response and some good fortune as well. KH
