Major CD4 Drop Question

<< < (2/3) > >>

"Aussies can be a bit slow"

But they are so very cute :P

Matty the Damned:
Ive decided to just try and start over at a new clinic, maybe that will go better.

That sounds like an excellent idea.

But they are so very cute

Awwww!  ;D --blushes on behalf of his cute countrymen-- ;)



Moving house is right near the top of the top ten "major life stressors" (or whatever they call that list) and there's a very good chance your CD4 count is reflecting that. Even if a house move goes smoothly, it is still a very stressful time.

Take care of yourself, try to relax and chances are good your CD4s will go back into the range you're used to. Don't be too hard on yourself and try not to worry so much. Your numbers are still excellent.

Oh, and welcome to the forum! ;)


Hey CJ,
As our Matty said, CD4s can fluctuate like Bush's approval ratings. I have had mine drop as much as 600 at times.

The percentage is a much better barometer of how things are going.

That said, your decision to look for a better clinic/doctor seems wise to me. You need a good doctor, preferably an internist who specializes in HIV care. NPs are fine for some things, but not for continuing care.

Good luck and let us know how you are doing.



Hi CJ,
I was raised in Portland and now live south of Seattle (Des Moines).
Have you tried ACAP through Lifelong AIDS Alliance?
If insurance is an issue, have you tried The Country Doctor?
