Hi All,
After being away for a few months im back!!

Here are my lab results..
They seem to be all over the place  what are your thoughts. The original doc thinks it will be 15 yrs before i need meds can that be right with these reults?

                cd4     vl
07/11\05  890     900
09/01/06  664     100
10/04/06  691     16000
01/05/06  571     10100
17/05/06  605     7930

HIVworker:
While the viral load is low, the CD4 count is coming down quite quickly. I don't know where they get 15 years from but you might want to at least ask them what criteria they are using to make the decision.

cd4 is coming down but it can go up again.  is it possible the due to stress my cd4 is going down??

newt:
Your CD4 is LEVEL on the last 5 (possibly 6) results (sorry to disagree HIVWorker, but I do) and well within normal range.  The import no here is the 1-2 log jump in viral load (100/900 to about 10k). Even at 10k, it's low though. Your doc is speculating when he says 15 years though (agree with HIVWorker here), no-one can really say this from CD4 + viral load in advance. - matt
