First Labs after starting ARV
« on: November 29, 2010, 11:41:02 AM »
Hey guys, today I've been to the Hospital to make the blood tests after 3 months of Kaletra and Combivir mix.
And I got a great news that I have no resistance to any medication now on market. So I am open to any combination.

The bad news is that my viral load before starting the treatment was over 10 mil copies.
Has anyone around had this night viral load? Cause what I see around is maximum up to 1 million.

Anyway tomorrow will get the CD4 number. When I started was 497. Hope will be better now.

There's too much confusion.

I just read a question to a doc at thebody where the patient said his/her vl was 70 Million.  That surprised me as I hadn't seen someone say their's was that high before.  The doc didn't say that was unlikely, so I guess some have it that high?

So got today the other results.
CD4 are 520 from 490... not as good as expected but the CD8 ad down so the CD% it's good.

I didn't do the Viral load cause I started from 10 millions so will do after 6 months to see if I am UD.
There's too much confusion.
