leatherman:
great news Jim!  ;D


exercise may not be all it's cracked up to be. LOL I've been going to the gym for an hour every day, 5 days a week, for 2.5 months. And what did I get for it? my cd4s dropped from 400 to 362 and now down to 319.  ::)

I do have to admit after staying in the low 300s for so many years, I was a little suspicious  8) of the 3 counts just above 400 that I've had in the last two years.  ;D

my BP is always up when I go to the doctor. LOL I used to get care here in a small city in South Carolina; but I switched about a year ago to a doctor up in North Carolina. (with all that ryan white quality improvement training I've gotten and all the work I've done with the Part A, B, and C quality committees, I knew I wasn't getting quality care and it was time to find a new doctor) unfortunately, it means I have to drive an hour to see the doctor - a long drive up the highway and through to the far side of Charlotte. it's posted as 55 mph going through CLT; but if you drive under 70 you're sure to be run over by a semi, or slammed into the center median by someone trying to get around your slow-ass driving. LOL Needless to say with the tunes jamming and the pedal to medal through heavy highway traffic, everything about me is elevated by the time I pull into the parking lot.

Hi, Jim.

Great number.  I envy you.  Mine is always under 400.
Diet is a problem for me.  Junk food is everywhere - coffee, diet Coke, fast food...
I drink too much coffee everyday.

Exercise - l walk a lot, especially on weekends.
Plus l do this Tina Turner dance when nobody is watching  :D :o

Thank you for being a great moderator.

Glad to read that you are doing very well with controlling and suppressing the HIV, Jim.  Your CD4 count is outstanding!

Yes, it's good to keep an eye on the blood pressure. In the States, 150/90 would be consider Stage 1 hypertension (if that was your consistent blood-pressure reading), so not crazy high.  Your doctor will keep a close eye on things.

Yeah, they said similar - well part of me thinks it could be worse and it is what it is. Yeah back in October, slightly healthier diet and hopefully things will be better :-)
