This is Dr. David
why are you getting these tests?
these tests dont' tell you if you have HIV or not.
you have had HIV testing already which are negative.
you need to stop worrying about having HIV.
I understand what you are saying but I am so upset why does my cd8 supresser would be high 1212 the ratio is 1.15 please explain it to me are there other things that make that go up
your immune system controls your CD8 and 4 levels
ratios of these levels don't tell us about your immune system or HIV
your immune system brings these ratios up and down as your immune system needs them.
So my cd 4 say 1400 and 50% pos normal my cd8 say 43% pos high1212 and cd 4 and cd8 Ratio 1.15 so what would be the causes of cd 8 high
there is no cause.
there is no problems with this ratio.
so the ratio is normal but the cd8 elveted The cd 4 is 1400 50% what i am trying to ask you does this indicate Hiv please help me
no, this doesn't indicate HIV
I have told you this already
your prior HIV testing have all been negative.
this worry is driven from your excessive anxiety
I have been sick so the doctor did these tests please tell me what does my test mean . if I give yoiu all the numbers just explain to me in plain what does cd 8 eleveted mean thank you
I have told you that this test doesn't mean anything.
HIV is not causing you to be sick
it is your anxiety disorder which is causing your symptoms
you need to get more treatment for your anxiety
ok so you do not know why cd 8 are elveted
it is normal for your CD8 to be elevated.
your immune system takes care of this to keep you healthy.
ok please opt out
Dr David I am asking you why would my blood test look like that cd4 1400 pos50% and cd8 1212 43% now please if you do not know tell me if you do please answer me because I am worried and very scared thank you
these are normal levels
your immune system changes your CD4 and 8 levels to help fight off infections.
why did you even have this blood test?
your doctors should not have ordered this blood test for you
you shouldn't have requested it.
it only is worsening your anixety
it is not helping you to move on past this fear of HIV
until you get more therapy for your anxiety symptoms, you will continue to worry about HIV which you don't have
no they are not normal cd 8 is elveted why and it is elveted in hiv
it is not a sign of HIV
