HIV cell counts
Jul 7, 2007
I have been positive since 1991, maybe earlier. My current CD4 count is 594. My CD3 count is 3034, and my CD8 count is 2401. Is that a little high? Am I getting better and finally getting this under control? I take Mepron, Sustiva, Epivir,one other.(?)
Response from Dr. Holodniy
An elevated CD8 count is a normal reaction to HIV infection. CD8 cells are the main cell that helps contain HIV. So, your elevated count is actually a good thing.
