Response to CD4 Drop

Dec 16, 2012

As per your answer to my question, it was my Cd4 count that went from 339 to 684, and the percentages went from 14% to 20%, and then took a slight drop to 18%, should I be concerned. Does this indicate that the medicine is starting not to work? Took another blood test the other day to see what comes of it, results in 2 weeks, starting to get nervous. My numbers were going up, and then all of a sudden took a big drop.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

I would not be concerned given the CD4% increase. I'd wait a month or so and then retest.

CD3+CD4+ count and Viral Load
confusing results
