Hi , I was diagnosed with HIV in September and commenced treatment one week later with a CD4 of 140 and viral load of 28,000.
What does this mean in terms of achieving undetectable viral load? I live a very active life with travel (work related) and lots of flights overseas. I am worried around catching an infection as my CD4 is very low, but yet I do not suffer illness and I am relatively fit ( run 3 x 6km per week). Any guidance / comments would be appreciated.
1. What happens to the HIV that enters the cell after PEP is taken…..does it still circulate in the blood of the host and survives….is it possible that someone could be infectious after taking PEP, and after how many days does anybody become non-infectious after taking PEP.
2. while initiating ART, we usually recommend Atripla (TDF+FTC+EFV) as a first line med. but TDF is of high viral suppression power when compared to the other NRTIs…is it not possible some one started with Atripla, and develops resistance to it (due to adherence or any other reason) remains with out any other ART choices in the first line……could it be better if we start the patient with the other NRTIs and then move to Atripla when ever necessary?
