new labs/update
« on: June 15, 2012, 02:03:43 PM »
first lab since switched meds. VL is UD and CD4 went down a bit to 614, i guess shouldnt worry much bout that since they fluctiate.   so just ptezista/norvir/isenttrss no truvada or viread woohoo

cholesterol borderline at 205 should be less than 200 so will monitor it.  liver and kidneys are doing great no issues.   loving the meds so far no side effects

neuropathy symptoms have almost gone away since switched meds so another woohoo

Hey Mikey, congrats on the labs! Good to hear the neuropathy is better? Must be a big relief.

just like I pointed out to another member a few days ago, are you really all that certain that you're upset with your current numbers? ??? ;D You're up nearly 200 cd4s from just a year ago. That's a pretty serious improvement! :D Remember too, it's never really about how MANY cd4s you have (as long as you have more than 200 ;) ); but how WELL they work!

here's the upwardly mobile graph of your cd4s from for just the last year and a half

(btw your first count in 2011 is higher than I've had in 25 yrs! :P )
