Is my CD4 OK?
I have been on treatment for 6 months now. My base cd4 was 232, and after 6 months it went up to 287. Is my cd4 increase a normal trend?
My healtcare provider also told me that I need to wait for 12 months before I do my Viral load test.
I am on Efavirenz Lamivudine Tenofovir.
And I noticed that there are some genital warts on my anus. Probably those warts have been there for 4 months already and just noticed it this week. Should I be concerned about that?
Thanks for getting in touch.
With CD4 counts its not possible to predict how they will rise. Some people can be diagnosed with a low CD4 count and it can rise quit quickly, for others is takes longer. Your CD4 has risen, so this is a good thing.
In the UK you’d have your viral load tested monthly until it became undetectable. However the frequency of viral load testing varies from country to country. If you’re worried about waiting 12 months, then please discuss this with your doctor.
i-base advocates aren’t medical doctors so we can’t comment on the warts, therefore please discuss this with your doctor.
