Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thank you for your post.

I would appear that you've had an excellent initial response to your first-line HIV treatment. Your CD4 has increased about 200 cells or 10% points; rises that we'd be happy to see in 1 year, never mind 4 months.

We usually expect CD4 cells to continue to gradually rise for many years, yours are already nearly in the normal range.

I hope this helps, BY

Truvada (tenofovir) And Kidneys
