Questions About Treatment & Side Effects / Kidney disease due to Genvoya
« Last post by filopoz on Today at 06:10:47 AM »
I have been taking Genvoya for 48 days already and on my 30th day, I've had my blood test. While my CD4 is 530 and my VL is down to undetectable level, my kidney markers are not good as my creatinine went up to 129 and eGFR=60 from the normal level before starting the treatment. I have my blood retest and urine test last week and got an e-mail that we need to discuss further. Is there anyone out there who have a similar experience? Did you switch to other ARV? I kind of worried and my anxiety is killing me now. I still have to wait until next week to meet my ID doctor.

Gracias Andy por tu respuesta. Y que pasa si ella tenia alguna herida sangrante en su boca y yo la herida del rasurado en mi pene?. Te comento q luego de eso tuve sexo con una amiga sin proteccion y a ella a las 2 semanas exactas le dio una faringitis con fiebre. Estoy convencido que es vih. Ademas llame a la sexo servidora, le pregunte si es vih+ y me bloquea las llamadas.

Hola Diego,

Yo llevo tres meses con el mismo tratamiento, aguanta, no lo dejes, veras que valdrá la pena, yo igual tuve mucha comezón y muchos granitos por todo el cuerpo, use la crema Lubriderm me recomendó el médico la de tapa dorada y funcionó a la perfección. Que te revise el médico antes porque puede ser alguna alergia o reacción adversa que se debe tratar distinto.

No decaigas y mucho ánimo!!!

Okey Andy! Pero crees que tenga algo que ver el hecho de que me haya realizado una prueba de 4ta generación y el resultado es NEGATIVO! Aunque apenas tengo una semana d haber dejado el trabajo !! Solo tengo miedo de contagiar a mi pareja
