Hallo Kgomotso
If your viral count is not going up, your arv's are working. Low CD4 counts are associated with a variety of conditions, including many viral infections, bacterial infections, parasitic infections, sepsis, tuberculosis,injuries, malnutrition, over-exercising, pregnancy, cortisone use, normal daily variation, psychological stress. Maybe your doctor should just check for an underlying infection? Dr Bets
