Response from Dr. Holodniy

Your treatment response has been excellent. Your CD4 count has increased 4 times and your CD4% has doubled. The lower your CD4 count is when you start the longer it may take to increase. You may not see a consistent monthly increase over time. You may get to a plateau like you are at now for awhile and then see a more slow increase in cells over time.

Viral Load down but so is CD4
Does caffeine and alcohol interrupt arvs
