Very Low CD4 Count

Jan 6, 2007

Recently diagnosed with Aids. CD4 count was one. Have you ever known a CD4 count to me that low, and is it possible to increase.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Yes, I have seen counts as low as yours. HIV treatment is indicated ASAP, as well as two antibiotics, zithromax and septra to prevent opportunistic infections until your CD4 count can get above 200.

My girlfriend got Aids when she got raped,
Should I start meds?
