|Normal T cell count
Jan 15, 2007
I am 52 and started a reginmen of sustiva and truvada approx.15 months ago. I have been HIV for at least ten years.
I started my medicine becasue my T cell count fell below 250.
My T cell count today is 595 and my viral load is non detectable. Good news.
What are normal T cells count for a person over 50 who is HIV negative?

Thanks for your post.
While there's a slow decline in CD4 counts as we all age, you CD4 count at 595 is entirely normal, even for a 18 year old. More good news, no?
Best of health to you. BY
