Why has my CD4 dropped and not rebounded?

Jul 5, 2014

When I was diagnosed my CD4 was 9. Since I started treatment my CD4 had risen gradually to over 700. Last 2 labs it was below 400 in high 300 range. My % remains about 32%. I am nervous, I remain undetectable though. Anything I can do to boost my CD4?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Unfortunately, there is very little that can be done to raise CD4 counts. However, I am not concerned, given the undetectable viral load and stable CD4%.
