RE: Nurse in Thailand
Nov 27, 2001

After testing HIV+ this summer, I my lymph counts have gone UP with each round of lab work. (Aug 38, Sep 41, Nov 43) I am NOT on meds at this time.

Is this good or bad? The nurse from Thailand had a patient with the same thing...

Response from Dr. Feinberg

I don't know if you are giving me CD4 cell percents or total CD4 cells or what, but these numbers don't look significantttly different from one another. I wouldn't overinterpret these data, but at least they're not going down.

How CD4 and Total Lymphocyte Count are correlated?
