CD4 recovery numbers
« on: February 17, 2010, 01:37:32 PM »
Just wondered if a few other people could list thier cd4 results over a period of time, as I would like to compair my recovery against others. I started meds when my cd4 was 20 and in the hospital (unknown hiv infected at the time of hospitization). My results go (every three months) - 20.80.110.110.120.130.140.180.210.250.230 (blip).280.290.350 (Latest). So getting better all the time.
On Kaletra/Truvada - had severe re-action to Sustiva and Combivir was stunting cd4 recovery.
Thanks.

Also in UK latest test is <20 undetectable. I have been undectable for 2 years.

without knowing the baseline numbers from when you were healthy and HIV neg, you'll never be able to "figure" out how high your cd4s might go. Not getting treatment until very late (when a lot of damage has already happened to your immune system) can also be a factor in the cd4 never going back to a very high level.

When I was diagnosed I had a cd4 count of 5.
I've been poz for 18 yrs and my latest cd4 count was 242 ;D
and it's been 12 yrs (next month) since I was last in a hospital. ;) ;D

There's mine down there....

I'm quite happy with mine ;D except for my bitchy VL which is taking the slow boat to China. I guess I'll be one of those that takes a year to go UD.

Diagnosed: 6/29/93 and on my very first HIV test, likely infected early 1988 during college at age 23

lowest/nadir cd4 count 189 on 2/12/94, lowest CD4% = 14% on 6/29/94 (viral load testing was not done during those years)

... a decade later with 13 years of detectable viral load -- actually about 18 years since I was probably infected in 1988 (sorry for reverse chronology with the list below):

Date / Viral Load / CD4 total / CD4 %

3/17/09   102      1135      47.0%
11/11/08   <50      1140      45.6%
7/22/08    <50      1294      46.2%
4/20/08   <50      1320      44.0%
12/20/07   <50      1131      39.0%
(change to Isentress/TMC-114/Norvir/Truvada)
9/17/07   <50      972      40.5%
6/11/07   <50      1425      38.5%
3/14/07   <50      973      42.3%
1/23/07   101      702      41.3%
9/5/06      <50      886      36.9%
8/9/06      <50      882      38.6%
7/17/06   221      1037      38.4%
6/20/06   135      818      34.1%
(change to Fuzeon/TMC-114/Norvir/Truvada)
5/16/06   40,157   766      34.8%
4/19/06   37,008   576      33.9%
4/4/06      56,738   737      35.1%
1/4/06      21,389   573      35.8%
10/19/05   22,351   548      36.5%
7/26/05   25,534   514      36.7%
5/17/05   30,286   791      34.4%
12/18/04   22,986   591      31.1%
