What happens when CD4 hits 0

Jul 29, 2006

My CD4 count has been hanging around the 50-65 mark for the last couple of years, I have hit a CD4 count of 8. What happens when you hit 0?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

You still have CD4 cells in your body and circulating around even though the result says zero. That just means there are too few to count in the blood test. However, it also means that a person is at significant risk of developing opportunistic infections.
