Response from Dr. McGovern
There is nothing to worry about here. Your CD4 cells are gradually increasing up. You are in an excellent situation.
Also if your HIV viral load is still not detected, you may be an "elite controller" without any medications. Although you can ask your HIV questions at the HIV forum, I will mention that new guidelines for the treatment of HIV will probably be out later this year. Stay tuned.
