both CD4 and Viral load going down
Apr 6, 2014
What is the explaination for both CD 4 count and viral load going down while on ART?
Response from Dr. Holodniy
You would need to provide me with more information before I could respond. Specifically, what was the CD4 count and percent, HIV viral load level, before and after (and how long after you started and do you have repeated results over time) you started ART. What was the ART regimen you started and are currently receiving, are you taking any other medications, or have any other ongoing medical problems. It would certainly be expected to see the HIV viral load decline. But the devil is in the details about CD4 decline.
