I'll Tumble 4 Ya....or at least my labs will...
« on: August 28, 2012, 11:46:33 PM »
Seems to be the theme song of my latest labs...
The hot summer months must not be good for my CD4s count and %...They always seem to tumble in August...

Date   CD4     %    VL
8/11    667    36  <20   
03/12  1,041  42  <20
05/12  1,241  47  <20
08/12   780    37  <20

The only thing that went up were my triglycerides (242) and cholesterol (169).

The triglycerides should be under 175.. The cholesterol is okay if it stays under 200.

Guess I need to get better at taking my Lopid.

I have cholesterol envy. 169 is nothing to shake a stick at.  Im getting mine tested in a week and have already been given a warning that if they dont drop we would be having the statin discussion.

780 CD4 count? I wouldnt describe that as a tumble.  Bad adjective choice.  780 is still pretty damn good.
