2nd try
Jul 29, 2001

Dear Benjamin , I am really grateful for all the answers you provide in this website . I am in a situation here which is confusing me .I had a low risk exposure using condoms and then had some symptons which I am not sure if it was ARS or not .At about 30-35 days I took an ELISA Antibody which came back Negative . After a week or so after that i went it for a Blood test .The WBC count was normal , so was the Lymphocyte count .

However these were low haemoglobin 128(135-180) Hematrocit 0.383 (0.40-0.54) RBC count 4.26 (4.50-6.50)

The doctor says its nothing to do with HIV infection as he feels if there was ARS there would be change in the WBC .However there is no nswer for RBC count getting low .I am scared .Please reply at the earliest.

Response from Dr. Young

These values are really of no concern; with negative ELISAs, you have no reason to think that you have HIV at this point.


Can meds be blenderized ?
is it too late?
