a new cd4 count!
« on: February 07, 2013, 08:56:21 AM »
Well, after 30 + years of being a pozzie, I hit my all time high cd4 count! :)
1066!!! (and UD)
Never tested above 850 and have usually been in the 700's for the past decade.
Odd timing, as I am about to switch meds from Atripla to Truvada and Isentress.
(due to 10+ years of Sustiva slowly turning my brain to mush)

Another odd discovery yesterday from the doc...
He said that I am the only patient that he has taken off Atripla for cognitive issues.
hmmm.....???

I know my body and I am still committed to the change.

Hi Mitch777,

My meds were switched from Atripla to the Isentress/Truvada combination in 2009 after my genotype tests said that I had become resistant to Atripla.  I haven't experienced any side effects to that combination and my viral load remains negative and my t-cell counts and percentages stay good.  I hope that your experiences will be as promising.

Congratulations Mitch.  :)
You talked about your numbers and how good they have gotten.  How do you feel?  That is an important part of getting/staying healthy too.  You work so hard to help your body.  You should also make sure you feel good too.
Great job!

Uh, mine was 1462 w/52.2% last month, and that was a drop of ~300. In fact, mine hasn't been under 1000 since 2007 :P

As noticed . . .

Great results! See, even we who are somewhat seasoned vets of this battle can still pull off a victory!
