Rise in T-Cells

Jul 25, 2010

When I was first diagnosed in April of 2006 my T-Cell count was under 50. Since my diagnosis I have adamantly taken my atripla on time each day. My T-Cells stayed between 600 and 700. I did not have labs for the past 9 months (or possibly longer) but kept taking my medicine. Now I recently went for labs and my t cell count was 1188. Could this be true? Temporary? or Is this what happens when you take your meds correctly over a long period of time. I must add that although I had not seen my doctor in 9 months I have been EXTREMELY active for the past 9 months with a daily glass or two of red wine.

You are exceptionally lucky and have had a fabulous response, as this is not the norm. But keep doing what you are doing.
