my best friend cd4 196 & viral load 91- is this good or bad. is she hiv or aids

Response from Dr. Young

Thanks for your post.

Persons with a CD4 count below 200 (or 15%) have met criteria for AIDS. (All persons with AIDS also have HIV; it's just that those with CD4s greater than 200 generally don't have AIDS, just to be clear.) BY
