Whoo Hoo!
« on: September 25, 2007, 03:40:37 PM »
Got numbers back from my 9/19 draw and am still undetectable and my CD4's have risen to 361!  The Doc thinks that it was just my body taking a breath after going undetctable and backed off on CD4 production.  I am not anemic (thank you AZT) so dont have to consider med change, but are still keeping an eye on it. 

One thing that still plagues me is the swelling of my hands and feet.  I have told my Doc's and they were concered about anemia, but since I am not they are not concerned.  I drink plenty of water, limit my soduim intake.  Is there something else I should be doing?  I do consume quite a bit of sugar due to the high stress levels of being in the mortgage industry, could that be doing it? 
6/8/07 VL = 86,000 CD4 = 135

8/4/08 VL = <50 CD4 = 292 21%
