CD4 cell count
Mar 2, 2014
Dear Dr. Holodniy and Dr. Young,
Greetings from Japan.
I have been diagnosed HIV+ in 2009 with a CD4 cell count of 135 and a VL of 195,000. After starting ATRIPLA, My VL quickly went down to UD and my CD4 cells increased to 695. Meanwhile I have changed to COMPLERA due to CNS side effects of the Sustiva.
Over the past 10 month, my CD4 cell count went down to 480 with a relatively stable CD4% between 38% and 32%. My VL remained UD throughout with the exception of one Lues induced blip to 125.
Is the change in CD4 cells significant?
