So what stage is the hiv? Is is treatable?
| Response from Dr. Holodniy
Your CD4 count is in the normal range (500-1500), but your CD4% is moderately depressed (normal 30-50%). Your CD8 count and percent are elevated, which is an indication of your immune system reaction to HIV infection. Your other blood cell counts are normal. These results indicate some immune system impairment but certainly not advanced HIV infection.
