Managing Hiv and side effects of treatment
Jan 12, 2002

For a CD of 234 to drop to 213, does that indicate that I'm in dire straits?

Response from Dr. Henry

No. The risk for AIDS related events is clustered among those with CD4 counts < 150 though risk for pneumocystis carinii pneumonia is increased with CD4 count < 200. The % CD4 count is often useful to interpret changes in the CD4 count which can bounce around and even vary from morning to afternoon. KH
