Selenium question

Mar 20, 2011

Hello! Question, I recently had my examns for t cell count and HIV copy count and the results came a bit dissapointing for the T cell. My T cell count came back at 245, is there any way I can improve these T cell numbers? Also I am still showing up as undetectable. Thank You!

Response from Dr. Holodniy

You don't indicate what your previous CD4 count and percents were before this result. So hard to know the significance of your result. If you are asking whether a selenium supplement would help, perhaps, but probably not to any significant degree.

Is this a blip in viral load or nothing
