cd4 count

Jan 3, 2009

my son was recently tested and his cd4 count was this full blown aids?what is normal cdcount

Response from Dr. Holodniy

A normal CD4 count is between about 500-1500. A CD4 count of < 200 means someone has AIDS. So a CD4 count of 18 is very low and a person would be at significant risk for developing serious opportunistic infections.

Mixed Signals... Please help.
