undetectable 4 yrs viral load dectectable and CD4 rose?

Aug 16, 2009

Have been undetectable 4 years now 200 copies and detectable,but my CD4 count has raised from 200 to 457 which I don't understand and my Dr. didn't have time to explain it please help. I asked does that mean it has mutated?,or I took a bad batch of retrovirals?Havn't missed a dose.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

I am not concerned. This likely indicates viral load blipping, which is most likely the result of assay variability and not treatment failure.

acute infection? start treatment?
