How are you? Hospitals usually have policies regarding the confidentiality of the patients being treated. CD4 testing may be done in hospitals where your attending physician is a consultant. If you do not have a specialist yet, ask for a referral from your attending physician. It is very important to take all doses of the medications to prevent drug resistance. Inquire also about programs or support groups by the local government or hospital regarding this, not only for support but also for medications as well. Take care always and do keep us posted.
