my new numbrs as of 3/1/07
« on: March 09, 2007, 04:54:55 PM »
well this is what is happening:

CD4=443 (21%)  Viral=15000

My Cd went up as well as my VL. Not sure if that is a good thing or what. My doctor said both sets go up and down. Any feedback? thanks!

Hey Kat,

Well, on the face of it, I would wait and see what the next few labs show.

Since you are doing labs monthly, this shouldn't be a problem. You are still within the safety zone and above the threshold when meds are usually mentioned.

When did you test positive? Is this a new infection. If so, your numbers could bounce around like a raquetball for a while.

If you have been positive for a while, then I would keep a close eye on the labs. At the moment, it looks like you are experiencing a downward trend, except for Januray, when things bounced the other way.

That is why I would get a few more labs under my belt before trying to discern a pattern.

Just my 2 worth.
