I’ve updated the charts I’ve kept since 1998 with the latest results, up through July 24, 2012. You can also find these and other medical records by clicking on the “attachments” tab at the top of the page.
The most obvious change is the PCR, which dropped by 2 logs in the first month. The CD4 count and percentage—the numbers I’m much more interested in—have reversed their decline, but the results are not as spectacular.
A caveat: there is more to this story than I am able to share yet. I’m not trying to be mysterious, but I have to balance my ability to carry out my objective to share information, with the reality that few, if any licensed doctors in my area would approve of my strategy to greatly reduce the risk of adverse effects, and I know some of my doctors read this blog. I am hoping to find a way to resolve this dilemma soon.
Markers related to liver function, etc. are all good. I continue to have low hemoglobin, hematocrit and RBC counts, and a few other markers that are out of range, but not significantly so. Side effects have been minimal, and the fatigue has not improved.
I’ll write more when I have more time.
