cd4 count is 14
Nov 10, 2007

is it bad when your cd4 count is 14 i have no appittite loss of weight

Response from Dr. Young

Thank you for your post.

If you have a CD4 count of 14, especially with anorexia and weight loss, your health is in a very serious condition. These symptoms and findings merit the diagnosis of symptomatic AIDS.

A prompt and detailed medical assessment is needed; a multi-drug HIV medication regimen should be started (and adhered to) as soon as possible.

Best of luck, BY
