WBC or WHITE BLOOD COUNT
Dec 13, 2009

I hear a lot about WBC. is there a connection between WBC and HIV? my WBC has been low since I became HIV+.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

You don't indicate how low your WBC is. Yes, HIV infection can be associated with a low WBC, but there are many co-factors such as meds, other ongoing medical conditions, other ongoing infections, or a variety of cancers that could be causing the problem as well.
