Undetectable Viral Load with Low CD4 count and %

Nov 22, 2009

I have been on a combination of 5 different anti virals for a year and have had my viral load go to < 50 but my CD4 count continues to stay in the 250 range with my percentage in the 14% range. Wouldn't I expect to see an increase of my CD4 count and % after a year on this new treatment?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

YOu don't indicate what your CD4 count/percent was before starting this treatment regimen. So it is difficult for me to determine if you have had no response or a minimal increase in CD4 count over that year's time. In some cases, it takes longer than a year to see CD4 increases. The good news is that your viral load remains undetectable preventing any further damage to your immune system.

very high SGOT ang SPGT
CD4 dropped and my viral load increased
