Sep 17, 2006

my cd4 cell count is 29 just been diagnosed .my doc says I should start it possible my cd4 count will go up?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

I agree with your doctor. Your CD4 count is extremely low and you are at great risk of developing opportunistic infections. You need to start treatment ASAP. And yes, your CD4 count will go up with treatment.
