cd4 drop
Sep 25, 2005

my cd4 count went from 36to 190 in a period of 18 months. after my last labs it was 165. should I be concerned? I am now taking trisiver, reyetez and norvir. have not missed any dosages in 18 months. hep C pos. no drinking or drugs.Please advise

Response from Dr. McGovern

The main thing I would track is your CD4 percentage which is a more stable number to follow (and I think more informative) and your HIV RNA. Whether hepatitis C has a negative effect on T cell gain on HAART is controversial. An article came out just this week that found no effect.
