Why would I have a Total T cell sudden reduction?
Jun 13, 2010
Hi there, I am HIV positive, diagnosed in July 09. I had a blood test in January 2010 that gave a total T cell count of 2624, my April 2010 test shows a total of 1348, what would cause such a severe drop in T cell count over a relatively short period of time?
Response from Dr. Holodniy
You don't indicate what your CD4 count, viral load have been, or whether you are on HIV treatment. It would also be helpful to know what the CD4 count/percent and CD8 count and percents were at these time points, and whether any other medical conditions or medications were involved.
