I've just been diagnosed with AIDS, absolute CD4 cells 66. and very high viral load, I've been 4 times to the ophtalmologist about an eye condition I thought was an infection, the ophtalmologist told me it was an allergy. I also noticed that on my lab results I had 0 (zero) absolute eosinophils, I researched that and they say these cells are resposible for fighting parasites and allergy. Now I started on Meds for a month, Kaletra and truvada and my allergy is gone, could there be a relationship with the allergy in my eyes with having no eosinophils ?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

That is an interesting question, but I have not seen or heard of such a laboratory finding or response as you describe.

Just tested positive
