DRUG RESISTANCE?
      #228912 - 07/25/07 07:17 AM

FOR THREE LAB DRAWS IN A ROW, ABOUT 4MONTHS APART, MY VIRAL LOAD HAS BEEN JUST SLIGHTLY ABOVE NON-DETECTABLE. (103, 152, 116). BUT MY CD4 CONTINUE TO RISE RAPIDLY. ( 302 TO 540) IN 4MONTHS! SHOULD I BE CONCERNED WITH MUTATIONS AND DRUG RESISTANCE? HAVE BEEN ON SAME DRUG CLASSES FOR ALMOST 4 YEARS. 100% ADHERENCE TO DRUGS. THE VIRAL LOAD IS TOO LOW FOR A GENOTYPE JUST YET.

From what I understand from my doctor the only time they actually do a resistence test is when you first start drug therapy or if you start to show resistence. If the drugs are working for you, then yippee for you... Those are great numbers btw. Take care, D
