CD4 and CD4% worried

May 24, 2013

Dear Dr,

I was diagnosed in fev 2013 and i started treatment (combivir, efavirez) in march 2013. Been 9 weeks since i started treatment.

When i started treatment: CD4: 330 CD4%: 19,9 VL: 189,000 copys Log: 5.28

Now my lab results are (9 weeks later): CD4: 365 CD4%: 26,84 VL: 484 copys log: 2,69

I'm a bit worried that the CD4 count only increased by 35.

Is the treatment working well? based on my lab results.

Thank you very much.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Fabulous response. Your viral load has dropped significantly and your CD4% has increased significantly as well. Keep doing what you are doing.
