OH CRAP Labs Not too good
« on: July 20, 2011, 08:16:43 PM »
 Just got back form the ID-Doctors today  ::) VL went up from non det to over 65 copies @ 1.8, doc thinks this is a error @ lab, also I tested False-Poz for RPR Titer  ??? doc says not to worry 20 to 25% will test false-poz, sometimes, everything else was NEG & nonreactive...

Lipids are too HIGH Cholesterol H239, Triglycerides H340,  so it looks like the Aptuivs will go away to see if this will stop all of the high lipids... ::) not sure what the doc will replace the Aptuivs with , she stated that I could probably do without it at all ::)

Creatinine went up from H1.50 to H1.61, so it looks like the Truvada will be cut in-half, and only taken every other day, I'll do more Labs at the end of AUG, and see my ID-Doc in the middle of Sept. 2011, and then she will make her final decision on what  HARRT MEDS go's and what stays....we'll see.....

 And Now, the GOOD NEWS, no STDs, Hep C, Anal-Cancer, HPV or Herpes, must be doing something RIGHT  :D other than that, I'm as healthy as a FUCKING HORSE @ least for a 54 yr old male, that has been POZ+ for the the last 23yrs.  ;D

What????   No HPV or herpes?  You're out of the club! ;D

I'd love to have those lipid results....I must still be doing something wrong. 

Gonna show some more ignorance, but what exactly is a false positive?  If they already know it's false, why not just say negative?  Or is my simple mind over simplifying it?

Hey Dennis,

Are you taking fish oil? If not, how about krill oil? They might help you with those pesky triglycerides.

Your cholesterol isn't too bad, but not great.

I can recommend a few diet tips to help you change your eating lifestyle, if you want.

I am, at this moment, marinating tofu that I will grill. I marinate it in gluten-free soy sauce, worchestershire sauce and green chile. YUM!

Anyway, I know how you feel regarding the meds issue.  I have been going through this as well.

Hang in there.

HUGS,

Mark

Den, I hope you don't mind a partial highjack?  Mark, I've been doing a lot with tofu lately and this sounds fabulous.  I love veggie burgers but have never figured out the proper way to do tofu to the same consistency.  Do you have any secrets?

Thanks!

Not @ all Greg  :-*  not sure sure what or why she called it a false-poz, but your not crazy non-reactive is neg..

@ Mark, I cannot eat tofu cause it has bean-curd in it, and I'm still on  that SIBO diet for the buggers in my gut, however I've heard a lotta good things about the berry & krill oil, unlike the fish oil, you don't have to take as much  :D

@ Mikie oh come on now, you know I like to change my avatar pic as often as my jock-strap  :D

Hey Dennis...

I'm glad for the GOOD news....as for the rest, I'd say you're still in pretty good shape overall....and yes, you are damn fine for 54 with HIV for 23 years.    We are the same age....many days, on the "INSIDE" I still feel as if I'm 30-something....but then I'll pass a mirror and see my Dad staring back at me....

HUGS,

Alan  :-*
