Low T-Cell Count
Sep 11, 2004

If a person's T-Cell count is at "4" will they recover or show an increase in T-cells if they start medications?

Response from Dr. Young

With a CD4 count of 4, the person has profoundly advanced HIV disease or AIDS. Newest combination treatments have been shown to be very effective in increasing CD4 counts, even in persons with very low counts. I'd definitely recommend starting treatment as soon as possible. BY
