Lower WBC with higher CD4

Apr 8, 2012

I am a "long-term progressor," and the results of my last tests showed that my CD4 increased from 1116 to 1319; but my white blood count dropped from 7100 to 5700. Should I be concerned about the WBC drop? (Also, I'm undetectable using the Roche COBAS.)

Response from Dr. Holodniy

No, I wouldn't worry about it. Everything is still within the normal range.

HCV RNA, Quantitative Real Time PCR
very slow progression concerned
