If you believe you have been exposed to HIV and want help to judge your risk, would like advice about HIV testing, or have questions about the effectiveness of condoms or risks associated with specific sexual practices, this is the site for you.
Like most times you don't know anything about HIV or testing. HIV is not the only thing that causes a CD4 count to be lowered. ie. (Mononucleosis, pregnancy, and pneumonia just to name a few.) Where do you find the CD4 cells joey? Lymphocytes! Where are lymphocytes located joey? In the white blood cells! When someone gets a WBC they get a lymphocyte summary. If there is a lymphocyte discrepancy then they start looking for the causes. HIV is not the only reason for lowered CD4 counts.
Hi Anil, a WBC count of 13,500 is a bit high. A CD4 count is a more specialized test on your white blood cells (lymphocytes) specifically, as Teak said. Normal CD4 ranges are anywhere between 500-1500c/cmm
Oh stop it. Nowhere did I say anything about HIV being the only thing that lowers CD4 counts. But I've never heard of anyone needng a CD4 count done, unless they have HIV. Bottom line is that a WBC count gives NO INFORMATION WHATSOEVER about a person's CD4 count. One can have high WBC and low CD4, or low WBC and high CD4. You are clueless, man!
Just because he can get away with standing on his soapbox over at aidsmeds...he will not get away with it here. There is no just cause on his harassing remarks on here to other forum users. This is abuse and threatening.
I do think you will be this time. Your insulting tone and threats get you no where.
I am confident you will be gone.
I think your remarks are sarcastic, bting, and threatening.
I am shocked to have learned you are allowed to preach this to public schools. I would like to know where...because you provde some innacurate information. Nonetheless, if you cannot accurately answer questions on here without calling people "Trolls", it is a wonder you are able to answer questions from our nation's youth. Now that is SCARY!!
