Why the Scare tacticts?

Oct 5, 1998

Doctor, i'm not sure if you can answer this question or not, but you, being an expert in this field, have stated that a Low Lymph % is not necessarily indicitave of HIV infection, yet, if one were to do a web serch on Low Lymph %, 9 out of 10 would be HIV or Aids related, why is this?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

I don't know what your search strategy is, but my clinical practice and experience would show many clinical diseases and medications as I have stated in the past, can result in a low total lymphocyte count. MH
