blood count numbers
Apr 27, 2009

I am a 48 year old female that is HIV positive. I recently had a blood test that showed hemoglobin 15.4 and hematocrit 46.6. My CD4 count is 610 virus is undetectable. What could be causing the high numbers on my blood test?

Response from Dr. Frascino


High numbers?!?! What high numbers? Both your hemoglobin and absolute CD4 count are within the normal range. Normal hemoglobin values in women can range from 12 to 16 g/dL.
