Thanks for the query

First, i love the way u have frames yor message. I wish everyone did that
1. It is possible to have both HIV 1 and 2 esp if u have had multiple sex partners
2. If u are fit with that low cd4 count then i am very happy for u. PLease do re check it from a different lab
3. U r in the right line of treatment, please continue the same
4. There need not be an improvement in the cd4 count all the time, ther are times when there is no improvement but the viral load is taken care of. Depends on the stage and the patient
6. It could be because of the HIV, please get lft, pt ptt inr and platelets done

Have a healthy life
