how to increase cd4 count during taking ART in india

May 9, 2014

I am taking ART meds from 3 years during this treatment my cd4 count was 700,676 but today my cd4 is can i increase my cd4 again

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for posting from India.

The only reliable way to increase your CD4 count is with ART medications. Assuming that you're adherent to your medications, and hopefully, with the knowledge of having an undetectable viral load, the best thing to do is to continue taking your medications.

I'd suggest looking at your CD4 percentage- does this show a decline or not? If not, then I would be looking for factors that might be decreasing your total WBC or lymphocyte count (such as infections or other medications), rather than a isolated decline in CD4 totals.

Hope that's helpful, BY
