CD4 COUNT - 217
Nov 14, 2008

If my cd4 count is 217 have I got aids?

Response from Dr. Young

Thank you for your post.

If you don't have any AIDS-related complications, a CD4 count that is above 200 does not qualify as AIDS (though it is awfully close).

At this level, all current treatment guidelines would recommend considering treatment very soon.

Best of health to you, BY
