About CD4 count

Dec 7, 2006

Hi Young, My CD4 count is 169 and started taking the medication. Now I am taking Atripla on everyday. Is it possible to increase the CD4 count?

Response from Dr. Young

Hi, thanks for your post.

Yes, the goal of every HIV therapy is to increase CD4 counts. So long as you're able to adhere to your regimen and achieve and undetectable viral load, I'd expect to see an increase between 100-200 cells in the first year.

I hope this helps, BY

Do I have to use pills ?
