IM HIV- NEVER TOOK ANY TREATMENT BUT STILL UNDETECTED AND MY CD4 COUNT KEEPS GETTING LOWER
Jun 17, 2011

IM HIV- NEVER TOOK ANY TREATMENT BUT STILL UNDETECTED AND MY CD4 COUNT KEEPS GETTING LOWER, WHY IS THAT IM STILL UNDETECTED AND MY DOCTOR HAS NO CLUE WHAT TO DO WITH ME OR MEDS TO PUT ME ON??

Response from Dr. Frascino

Hello.

You report you are "HIV -." Assuming that's correct, why are you getting CD4 counts??? If indeed you are "HIV -," we would expect your HIV viral load to be undetectable.

If you are HIV negative and your CD4 count has fallen well below the normal range, you should consult a clinical immunologist for further evaluation and management of non-HIV related CD4 lymphocytopenia.

Good luck.

Dr. Bob
