T cell count
Jan 25, 2013

My girlfriend is HIV+ she is in the hospital right now with a staph infection. She told me her T cell count was 167 and told me that's good but she hasn't gotten her viral yet? What does it mean?

Response from Dr. Henry

That is a low CD4 count indicating that she needs to be put on HIV medications and some antibiotics to hopefully regain and protect her health regardless of the HIV count. KH

tingling and numbness
Are probiotic and prebiotic supplements safe for the HIV infected person?
