Low White Blood Cells

Nov 9, 2008


I am on Truvada and Stocrin for the past two years - I have recently experienced swelling on my ankles - did the blood test for thyroid, protein, heart, liver and kidney and all tests came back normal however indicated low white blood count - my doctor suspects that I might have problems with my bone marrow? What do you thing? Please also note that my last CD4 count is at 427 and VL <50.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

That's possible. You don't indicate what your white blood cells counts have been and what they are now. It is unlikely that your low WBC is related to your HIV meds.

plese help to interpret
cd4 count
