HIV and AIDS

Do you know your CD4 count and viral load.
Have you had resistance testing done to tell if you have any resistance mutations?
Are you having side effects from the kaletra?
The reason I asked about resistance is to question if you have resistance to any of the drugs you are considering.
If the change is not for virologic failure, and just due to side effects ( renal effect of the tenofovir), then the change sounds reasonable.
Recent data has shown that abacavir likely is NOT dangerous to the heart- which was a prior concern, so I would not have a big problem with the Kivexa rather than Truvada.
As for kaletra vs Reyataz- I generally use a lot more Reyataz as it has less effect on lipids and is better tolerated than Kaletra.
Always ask if you need clarification/more information.
