sed. rate

Sep 22, 2003

If someone was at the end stages of HIV would thier sed.rate be high and would they have a abnormal CBC count? Thank you for your time. With out medication?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

In the absence of ongoing opportunistic infections, sed rates would probably be in the normal range. CBC could also be normal or abnormal, again depending on what the circumstances were.

Is it possible to have a CD4 count higher than the absolute lymphocyte count???
