15,000 WBC, <50 VL, 357 CD4

May 11, 2008

What does the high WBC count mean in conjunction with an undetectable VL and a CD4 of 357?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

The normal range of WBC is typically between 5-10,000. There are many, many reasons why the WBC count can be elevated. The absolute CD4 count could be affected (up or down) depending on what types of blood cells are elevated within the WBC count.

Drop of VL
Low cd4 and high triglycerides.
