Cool tools graph feature - notice any trends??
« on: January 18, 2009, 05:08:49 AM »
So the other night I noticed the cool tools graph feature on this site and spent the time entering in cd4 counts for the years, hit the button and noticed a trend.  My t-cells hit a high point every September (the end of summer) and hit the year low point in December (the darkest dreariest here in Seattle).  This is the only year where the t-cells continued up in December and by coincidence, I put up my grow lights three weeks before my blood draw in December.  I have always known that I suffer from SAD (don't ask me why I still live in Seattle then) but I never had all my numbers in front of me in graph form.  Now I'm wondering what would happen to my t-cell count if I moved to LA, Phoenix, Honolulu, or Miami.

Has anyone else noticed any interesting trends from graphing out your labs?

I've been using the cool tool graph for years and I post my graph on website and a small version in my sig line here ;)

Quite clearly from my graph, you can see when I started to stay on my latest regimen 100% (even though it makes me puke 6 times a month) to make sure I stayed alive for my late partner. See how the graph changes dramatically after 12/2004?  ;D (it took me 10 yrs to reach my first undetectable)

Early this past year, my doctor became worried about a blip in my viral load - until I took him a graph of just the last two years. It showed that the blip in question was actually blip#5 in that 2 yr period and the smallest of the blips.

I wish I had all my test results from the last 16 yrs. instead of just the last decade; but I was so sick and the docs were so "sure" I wasn't going to make it back in the 90s that I never bothered to track those numbers. When I survived a second hopitalization in 1998, I finally began to think I just might make it a for more years  ;) and that's went I started keeping numbers.

Oh, and after playing with the numbers from my test results, I recently determined that my avg tcell count for the first 10-ish years was only 170; while it has risen to 227 avg over the last 6 years. WooHoo!
