CD4 count

Sep 24, 2006

In July 2006, his CD4 is 6. After, he takes anti drug and multi vitamines for three months. Now his CD4 increase to 16. Is it a good start of treatment?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

I am unclear whether this person is taking HIV meds or not. An increase in CD4 count from 6 to 16 after 3 months of HIV treatment would not be considered significant. Also what is the viral load level doing?

aids and hiv
CD4, CD8 and viral load blood test
