normal wbc

Mar 1, 2009

I just found out that I am HIV positive. I haven't had labs to determine CD4 or VL. All I know is that my white and red blood cell counts are normal. I am scared and curious as to how advanced my HIV could be. I am certain I have had it no longer than a year. Based on my wbc, should I be immediately concerned?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

You cannot make any conclusions based solely on the WBC. You need to wait until you have the CD4 count/percentage and viral load are to better know where you stand.
