High T-Suppressor cells

Aug 2, 2009

hello doctor. i just got my result and it shows that i have too high corrected T-suppressor cells. what does it means? i also have low corrected T-Helper cells of 283.. what are my chances of survival.... i have no info about my viral load count yet.please help

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Your CD8 (suppressor) number is increased as a result of HIV infection. Your CD4 count is decreased as a result of HIV infection. Given where your CD4 count is currently, HIV treatment would be recommended.
