3 years undetectable and cd4/950+

Mar 22, 2000

I have been posiive for 4.5 years. I am not on any meds. I have been tested by the Air Force from the beginning of my diagnosis.

I am wondering what is going on with me. Is this normal for someone to be undetectable less than 50 with an increasing cd4 count?

I asked my doctor if she has witnessed anything like this? She said, "No."

Response from Dr. Holodniy

There are definitely people with HIV infection in your situation. You either have a wimpy virus, or a great immune system that can contain HIV replication and prevent the destruction of CD4 cells. MH

CD4 count with HIVD
viral load <50; t-cells fluctuating?
