I wanted to do charity ever month to the foundation but I am not getting how ...

Response from Dr. Young

Hi again and thanks for posting from Mumbai.

An abnormal CBC can give clues to an underlying problem (like HIV); if I recall, your CBC was normal. A normal CBC give no clues to rule in or rule out HIV infection, and even positive persons can have normal CBCs.

I hope that helps and that you're able to link up to volunteer work in your country. BY

My child free from HIV - Thanks for this wonderful website
