My current health status

As of November 2011, my current sero/health status:

CD4 count: 608 units - from 610 units of December 2010

Viral load: 86 units - from 111,000+ units of initial Treatment Hub enrollment (2010),
after more than a year of taking EFV, still not undetectable. But there's a drastic change, a sign of NO VIROLOGIC FAILURE

Hemoglobin count: 176 units - as per RITM's CBC vs 124 units of company APE's CBC, so RITM told me am not Anemic contrary to what was previously diagnosed. 

Cholesterol/Triglyceride level: Borderline high, as per Makati Medical Center's Blood Chemistry Test, this is an obvious side effect of my ARV's.

Hepatitis A/B/C: Non - reactive

Pulmunary XRAY: normal

AFB smear and culture: no AFB seen

TB culture sensitivity: No growth seen for 6 weeks, via MMC's TB BACTEC MGIT test
