Hi Doc.My cd4 count is about 650 and I am not on medication.I am taking BP drugs but my BP is not going down.what do I do.

Response from Dr. Henry

Blood pressure can be a challenge to control in some patients with or without HIV infection. An assessment of kidney function is worthwhile in this setting. I seek consultation with either a heart or kidney specialist when I have a patients with hard to control high blood pressure. In the absence of significant kidney problems usually not related to the HIV infection. KH
