same meds for a long time, first time abnormal lab results
Nov 5, 2013
hello, I am writing because my last blood tests came out abnormaly high, cd4 absolute 2150, cd3 4000, and cd8 1100, after a month I repetead only cd4 and it came out 1900, still high, I am taking the same meds, combivir, norvir, telzir for a long time, never in my life had this happen, my cd4 were alwsys aroun 500-900, I am undetectable, have been since I started meds 11 years ago. other blood tests came out fine, including cbc with differentials, wbc 7.3 absolute number and normal ly. I am extremly worried, I have been taking supplemens like proteins and carnitin but I doubt this happened because of them! thank you ps:my doctor said not to worry but I need a second opinion
Response from Dr. Young
Hello and thanks for posting.
Your CD4 tests are indeed higher than typical, and this usually isn't an indicator of HIV-related or medication-related problems. If you had recently started on your supplements, I'd have to wonder if they could be related.
Hope that helps, BY
