how do i increase cd4 count naturally

Feb 24, 2008

my cd4 count is 197 and i am not eager to start taking medication. how do i boost it up?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Hmmm, regardless of your viral load level, I would strongly urge you to reconsider starting HIV meds. Given your CD4 count, you have an AIDS diagnosis and are at risk for developing opportunistic infections. Natural products (of those that have been studied) have generally not been shown to increase CD4 counts significantly.

low cd4 and undetectable viral load
Undetectable 4yrs, now high VL
