6 Months Blood Work- Good News
« on: January 27, 2014, 01:46:04 PM »
My labs continue to show good news for me:

CD4:  985
CD%  46.9%
VL      <20

The niacin adjustment is working.  My blood sugar is stable though slightly high at 121.  My triglycerides are down from 315 to 233.  My HDL is now 51 (chronically low for most of my adult life.)  At 58, I am fortunate to have my HIV so well controlled on Atripla since Feb. 2007 with virtually no difficult side effects.

Congrats.
