MY CD4 COUNT WAS 500 IN SEP. 2006. I DID ANOTHER ONE THIS FEB. AND FOUND THAT i HAVE CD4 AT 84, i HAVE BEEN VERY HEALTHY WITH NO INFECTION OF ANY KIND. I DO NOT UNDERSTAND THE DRASTIC FALL. I HAVE BEEN TOLD BY MY DOCTOR THAT I NEED TO START ARVS ASAP. THIS FALL HAS REALLY CONFUSED ME. PLEASE HELP. WE HAVE ALWAYS BEEN TOLD THAT CD4 FALL GRADUALLY BUT NOT SO FAST.

This is a very unexpected result, therefore, it has to be treated with suspicion. Get another CD4 cell count checked before you consider HIV therapy.
