Aquariums and low T-cell counts.

Aug 4, 2010

Dear Dr. Franscino,

I was wondering if setting up and caring for an aquarium would be an issue with someone just diagnosed with hiv/aids with a cd4 of about 100 and an undetectable vl. Thank You, Sincerely, Fishy in Love

Response from Dr. Frascino


Just follow routine common sense precautions, such as using gloves when you clean your aquarium and washing your hands after finding Nemo (or whatever) and you should be fine. Enjoy!
