Viral Load Undetectable on Meds and CD4 declining
Jan 16, 2011
I have been HIV+ for 2 years, and am currently on Atripla. No health issues to date. My CD4 was initially 290 (2 years ago), as of October 2010 my CD4 was 587.
Last friday I received a full physical. Today I was advised that I'm undetectable, no stds or anything. However, my CD4 is now 387. Should I be concerned?
Response from Dr. Holodniy
Given that your viral load is undetectable, probably not. The CD4 count can vary for a variety of reasons. It is likely that your CD4 percent has not changed significantly. So, I would not ce concerned.
