CD4 Count 6 - need urgent help

Dec 19, 2009

My dad was recently diagnosed with HIV stage 2??? He also has TB. He's been in hospital for 3weeks now and was making great progress until 6days ago. His legs started swelling & his now lost movement in his right arm. I found out today that his CD4 count is 6. Someone at work recommended I try your site for natural medication. The hospital is currently giving him Strepomycin and others. Please help it's urgent.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

This is not enough information to determine what is going on and whether an appropriate work-up and treatment regimen has been prescribed. I am not sure that "natural medication" is what he needs now. It sounds like he has AIDS, active TB, and possibly some other process or HIV or TB accounting for these new findings.
