Low CB4 or (CD4) Cells

Jun 2, 2006

Response from Dr. Wohl


He is at risk for bad things to happen. That they have not yet is fortunate. But, the time to tempt fate has passed and he needs to improve his odds for staying active and healthy by improving his CD4 cell count with medications that can control his HIV.
