If someone has had HIV for a long period of time (defined as showing HIV disease symptoms)Is it likely that their CBC would show some kind of abnormality in either the Red or White Blood count. Logic tells me that since the symptoms are present, the immune system has already been compromised which a CBC should show.
Response from Dr. Holodniy
Many people with established HIV infection have normal CBCs.
