My second lab results
« on: August 10, 2013, 03:26:00 PM »
I just thought I'd share this with others who perhaps just found out they are infected.

My second lab results after being on meds for just over 9 weeks showed great improvement :)

My VL is just 78 and CT4 576.

That's great - a couple years ago they would have said you were undetectable. I hope you're feeling good!

Thanks, I feel great. Just stoked as did not think my meds would help bounce my numbers so quick. As I started meds when still in conversion my VL was in millions...

A person who starts meds very early will often have a very quick drop in VL. This is because the body generally does a good job of dropping it on its own in the first 3-6 months, and when you add the meds to the process, it's like adding high-performance racing fuel. 

Onwards and upwards/downwards! (Depending what numbers you're looking at.) ;)

HIV is certainly character-building. It's made me see all of the shallow things we cling to, like ego and vanity. Of course, I'd rather have a few more T-cells and a little less character. Randy Shilts
