Response from Dr. Young

Hi and great to hear from you.

It sounds like your doing just great. While persons who start treatment with very low CD4s (like you) tend to have slower increases in counts, we typically see slow and continual increases over years. So, I wouldn't give up the idea that you'll someday reach normal counts and percentage.

Thanks for sharing your messages and happy holidays to you. BY
