What about if I have been doing well without ART?

The latest WHO guidelines now recommend that everyone should start ART regardless of CD4 count when they are diagnosed. This is to reduce the longer term issues the virus may cause and to reduce the forward transmission of HIV.

This means that some people should now be thinking about ART earlier than they expected, because the advice from their doctor has changed.

In general though, your doctor is right to be talking about starting ART and this is good information.
