How do i improve on my CD 4 count?

Jan 18, 2009

6 months ago my cd4 count was 951 5days ago i had another test which showed a big drop.The latest CD4 is 521.Am so worried what should i do to improve it.I have been stressed alot of late could this have an effect on my count. Thanks

Response from Dr. Holodniy

I suspect your CD4% is relatively stable, despite the drop in CD4 count. The CD4% is a more stable number over time. The absolute CD4 count can vary because of time of day, stress, different labs or assays, other ongoing infections, among other reasons.
