New Numbers!
« on: August 22, 2006, 01:35:00 AM »
After about 2 years poz I finally had to start meds back several months ago (don't have the exact month in mind).  I got a little freaked out when my first meds (Truvada/Viramune) didn't supress my VL.  I was then prescribed (Reyataz/Norvir/Truvada).  Today I got word that my VL is now undetectable - YIPPY!  ;D  Here are my numbers:

T-cells 504/25%, Viral Load <75 Undetectable

My previous T-cell count was 581/30% and Viral load 182

I guess the T-cell % shouldn't alarm me since it went down, huh?

Actually T-Cell Count and Percent should actually rise. Hopefully it wont drop any lower.

31 to 60 Percent is the normal range, anything below 20 percent is another reason to start medications.

11/21/2006 CD4        VL <50
10/02/2006 CD4 1034 VL 114
09/06/2006 CD4 1595 VL   87
08/02/2006 CD4 1266 VL <50
06/07/2006 CD4 1412 VL <50

Diagnosed 10/18/2004
Truvada(1x day) & Maraviroc (2x day)

Hi Steve,
I must say your new numbers have me a bit stumped.
The reason being because your tcells dropped and percentage dropped. These are the numbers that my doctor thinks are THE MOST important.
It's great that you're undetectable now.
Your CD4's aren't that bad at all and niether is your %.
Just things that you certainly want to keep a close watch on.
I'm hoping and praying for you that those don't get much lower.
No biggie ;D You'll be fine and I'm sure you're doctor is well aware of this and watching closely.
The best of luck to you, my friend!

but the staying down
