Your labs are good. Frequency of checking labs for patients doing well on treatment is steadily decreasing (ie I often check HIV level twice a year and am moving to CD4 counts yearly once > 350-500) so rarely urgent to recheck so delaying during flare-ups of other conditions is often reasonable. KH
