It is unclear from your email whether you are receiving medications to fight HIV itself. Also, what your liver problem is exactly is not clear.
A CD4 cell count of 34 is very low (the normal level is around 800-1000). Without HIV therapy your chances of staying illness-free, I am sorry to say, is very low. If HIV treatment is available where you are, you should pursue it along with physicians experienced in the management of HIV infection. DW
