Hello dr.Holodniy and thanks for being there. I'm from Barcelona, diagnosed on oct 2006. I just write to say hi and let you know about my cd4 and viral load trend. nov2006: cd4 811 (41%), vl 100000 feb2007: cd4 1050 (31%), vl 4321 may2007: cd4 754 (28%), vl 1260

i am generally happy with my results, because my viral load has a descending trend, but my cd4 percent kinda worries me... should i be concerned? thanks a lot

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Love Barcelona! You don't indicate whether you started HIV treatment, if so, what HIV meds, or whether you are taking any other medications. Certain medications could be causing this. Although your numbers are still sufficiently high, I can understand your concern. It would be a little unusual to see the CD4% go down like that on it's own.
