low t cell count of 9 or less
Oct 9, 2006

Are you considered to have full blown A.I.D.S. if your T - Cell count is lower than 9

Response from Dr. Frascino


One of the criteria for an AIDS diagnosis is a T-cell count less than 200. Consequently a count of nine certainly would qualify. By the way, we don't use the term "full blown AIDS" anymore, because there is not such thing as "partially blown AIDS."
