Seeking advice

I went for my checkup yesterday and something is not right with my test results. It seems that my CD4 count keeps dropping and they can't say why. It went from 778 in January, 2013 to 690 in August, 2013 and 577 in a April, 2014. I can't remember the last time I had a viral load test run, because in Nigeria most treatment centres don't provide that service.

I can't give advice, but.....

My cd4's went lower as my Viral load went lower, with no meds. I can't say what happens on meds...but it looks like if your sick or fighting the virus...or a cold...cd4's go up. As you beat the germ/virus..it looks like cd'4s come down again. I can't say for sure, as I only track my stat's. I am rarely ill, I eat very good foods, and my cuts heal in a day. I can only go day by day, but I do think healthy fresh foods strenghthen us....and everyone. Junk food robs us of our health, and HIV wins!

Unfortunately, it can be difficult to find a friendly health care provider who is knowledgeable about HIV and pregnancy. Some health care providers simply are not aware of the wealth of information about pregnancy planning for their patients living with HIV (HIV+). Perhaps even more challenging, though, are the judgmental attitudes that many health care providers still have.
