Cd4 dropping down fast

Mar 10, 2003

I was diagnosed HIV+ by end of 2001 at that time my v/load was 17000 CD4 695.I am doing my tests every three month since then .I am in good shape, no symptoms at the moment, in fact I have put more weight .but V/load and CD4 counts dropping down fast .my v/load is 3500 CD4count 341 last month is it normal?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

This is not normal. I would not react to a single set of results, but these clearly bare repeating sooner rather than later.

Two positive viral load tests
my doc say's?
