last year september my cd4 was 313 and vl 198000 started meds in september did two tests after starting meds cd4 now 565 vl undetectable. Meds is a good thing and why wait until it is to late you owe it to yourself to look after number one who is you.

I was diagnosed with HIV in June of 2007. In January of 2009 I had a CD4 count of 374 and a Viral load of 61,000. Then in March I went on meds, with my first tests I registered a CD4 - 405 and Viral - >75. My most recent testing showed CD4 - 502 and Viral - >75. I have had very little side effects from the meds and on the positive side I have found a return of energy.
