My new numbers.
« on: October 09, 2013, 10:19:19 PM »
When I was diagnosed in August, I began Atripla immediately.  At the time, my CD4 count was 442, CD4% 46, and viral load great than 10 million.  The high viral load was explained as something common to new infections and, I was told, would go down on its own even without medication.  Well, I got my results back from early October.  CD4 is now 694, CD4% is 50, and viral load is 274.  I wonder how much of that lower viral load is due to medication, and I hope that next time it will be double digits or even undetectable (wishful thinking this early on maybe).  Anywa, it's all good news for me and I just wanted to share because I've been having a string of good luck lately.  Hope everyone is doing well, and thanks for reading.

Great numbers.  I expect your next labs will show UD.
