Immune recovery
« on: January 18, 2019, 08:08:57 pm »
Anyone else see a lack of immune recovery?
New insurance required a new ID.  The new doc. Wanted new bloodwork.  Over a year in CD4% hasn't budged from 14%.  Total count peaked at 300 from 112 at diagnosis.  I've been told to focus more on the percentage but, that hasn't changed in a year.

Your CD4 count has trebled.  You no longer are at risk for AIDS defining conditions.

What else are you looking for?

I don't know, last count from Tuesday was 284.  I had a drop measured in November 260.  Mostly just thinking of the higher the better.  The mec. In me keeps thinking of it like poor compression readings.  Good news is the VL barely registered at 24.

I have read through several forums tht for some people the increase in CD4 count is slower than other and it also depends on various factors like your lifestyle, what time you take the blood test etc. However important thing to note is that the VL should be under control and that shows the medicine is working. And to be fair 300, from 112 is not that bad. I started with 105. after 3 months on medication i jumped to 435 but after 3 further months it was just 438.
