Falling T cells

Dec 24, 2005

I have been positive for 6 years. My T cells have continualy risen.When first diagnosed my T cells where 180-220. Six months ago my T cells where 692 and I was undetectable. Three months ago my T cells droped to 574 I was still undetectable. What may have caused this? My doctor said this may have been caused by my system fighting a cold.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Perhaps. But I suspect there was no real change in your CD4 count because your CD4 percent was likely the same for both counts.

Initial drop then rebound
