a following test
Jun 27, 2001

Dr Little: I wrote to you before regarding my presisitent high CD8 and negative ELISA results. I did another test recently. There are all the results: Jun 2000: CD4 830 33, CD8 930 37 0.89. Nov 2000: CD870 30, CD8 1160 40 0.75 Jun 2001: CD4 900 32, CD8 1040 37 0.86 You told me that if the changes presistent, I should have more specific tests. The last one is the one I just did it. The CD8 is still high. What should I do? What specific tests should I do? Thank you.

Response from Dr. Little

This is not an HIV related problem. You should ask your doctor if he/she feels that you should see an immunology specialist.
