CD 4 count
Jun 13, 2009

Doctor, in September 2008 I started treatment. The CD4 count was 140. In june 2009 the cd4 count is 295. Viral load is undetectable. Is the pace of the cd4 count increase acceptable or slow.I am on Atripla. Thanks

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for your post.

Your CD4 count rise and viral load are absolutely acceptable- I usually expect between 100 and 200 cell increase within a year. You've achieved this in excellent pace.

Be well and thanks for reading.
