cd4 countp

Jan 8, 2011

my cd4 count is 219 and doc advised me to start med. is it possibble that i can make the cd4 go up using herbs, like mariandina etc without starting the med. doc i dont want to start med now. i wish i can try to eat more balanced diets and the herbs. is it ok. and how long does cd4 take to go up

Response from Dr. Holodniy

No, I would NOT rely on herbs alone, and I would NOT delay starting HIV meds. You will see your CD4 significantly increase after starting HIV meds in about 1-3 months.

do I need to go to the hospital
Hi doctor my cd4 is260, VL is 0
