Hi Lumka!

Your CD4 count is nearly at the level where ARV treatment is indicated. (ARV treatment usually starts when the CD4 count falls to 200).

Apart from a healthy diet and treating any opportunistic infections immediately and properly, you could consider immune-boosting supplements such as garlic and African Potato. I also believe that a positive attitude towards life goes a long way towards promoting physical health.

I don't know enough about you to make more specific reccomendations. If you have not yet done so, do consider building up a good relationship with a supportive counsellor and a profficient medical practitioner to follow you up.

Stay well!
