Response from Dr. Wohl
A typical CD4 cell count is around 800-1000. There is much variation in this number from person to person and even laboratory to laboratory.
If your friend has a CD4 cell count above 500, this is considered quite good and HIV related problems are possible but less likely. Hopefully, your friend is seeking medical care for his symptoms.
