Hello, welcome to HCM. Once a patient has started ART, the viral load
is used to monitor the response to therapy. A key goal of ART is to achieve a viral load that is below the level of detection (e.g., 50 cells/µL within weeks after viral suppression, and increases of 50-100 cells/µL per year thereafter. For some patients, CD4 counts may not increase this quickly or steadily, even with durable viral load suppression. So you must be patient as you seem to be heading in right direction. Just consult your doctor when he is back to clinic. Wish you good health.
