Can I Increase my CD4 Count with out ART?

Jan 27, 2008

Hi. I am from Africa. I was told to be HIV Positive before a year. My CD4 count before 6 months was 284. Now I have no any disease or syndrum. My only problem is skin problem especially in my face. So can you tell me any way I can increase my CD4 without ART?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

It is unlikely that your CD4 count, and your HIV infection will improve to any great degree without HIV treatment. It is also likely that your skin condition is the result of HIV infection and would also improve if your CD4 count was increased with HIV treatment.

prognosis at this point.
CD4 AND VL Down?!
