    Low T cell count



    A low T cell count is more common than a high T cell count. Low T cell counts usually indicate problems with your immune system or lymph nodes. Low T cell counts may be due to:
    • viral infections, such as influenza
    • aging
    • immunodeficiency disorders
    • exposure to radiation
    • HIV and AIDS
    • cancers that affect the blood or lymph nodes, such as Waldenstrom’s macroglobulinemia, leukemia, and Hodgkin’s disease
    • congenital T cell deficiency, in some rare cases

    Medications may be prescribed to increase your T cell count. No specific foods have been shown to increase the number of WBCs or T cells in the body. However, a healthy diet can help to boost the immune system overall.


    edit add: i just want to say both the chemo, and the hiv cause this, so we have been dealing with exhausted tcells for decades.
    My questions would how effective are the drugs what about the up to 4 in 5 people who don't know they have COVID19?

      trying to find the percentage of hiv that goes full aids. not seeing a percentage. seeing 10-15 years untreated, and potentially never with early detection and medication. my uncle got it in the 90s, to me he seems to have gotten physically smaller, but he is lean and fit.

      When you have HIV, your doctor will keep an eye on how much of the virus is in your system. You might hear them call it your “viral load.” Two things will tell them if your infection has become AIDS:
      • Your CD4 count. A person with a healthy immune system has 500 to 1,600 CD4 cells in a cubic millimeter of their blood. A person with AIDS has fewer than 200. This number is called your “CD4 count.”
      • AIDS-defining infections. These are also called opportunistic infections. These generally happen in people who have a CD4 count below 200. Viruses, bacteria, or fungi that don’t usually make healthy people sick can cause these infections in someone with HIV or AIDS.
      if you don't know you have it, it probably isn't exhausting your immune system.

      • Keep in mind that testing isn't where it should be. Up to 80% may be asymptomatic but there are people out there with symptoms who can't get tested. I had friends return from a vacation in New Zealand and Australia three or four weeks ago. One of them had cold/flu type symptoms which developed a day or two after getting home but wasn't approved for the test. She never did get tested and just assumed it was a regular cold. They had to go through the US to get home. Twenty-something hours of closed quarters plane rides and overrun US airports to get home and no test for her with some symptoms. I don't think they even got screened when arriving, at least they never mentioned it if they did. Maybe she's a rare case of missed screening falling through the cracks, I don't know.

        • just seems like the beginning again. the deaths are in old age home hot spots, and older sick people(generally). the cure for anyone without severe respiratory fluid build up is rest. not sure if it counts as a fever or a cold. starve a fever, feed a cold. your friend is most likely not at risk, and hopefully if she is sick she just stays away form others.

          i think it is especially tricky because right now is flu season, and allergy season. my mom has brutal seasonal allergies, and she gets crazy looks right now, haha.

          i thought up a joke that i haven't had a chance to use yet. i am hoping i let out a small cough or a sneeze at some point, and someone asks if i am ok, so i can tell them it is just my aids. nothing to worry about. haha

          if the death rate is .01-.02% your friend is not a risk to others. aggressive old age worker testing, and isolate the feeble.

              https://foreignpolicy.com/2020/03/14...aly-china-aid/

              while upset no one is helping poor pitiful theological dictatorships with the intent of the eradication of all jews
              https://ca.news.yahoo.com/eu-regrets...184202997.html
              why won't someone send iran's ayatollah billions of cash?

              where did iran's money go? oh yeah, secret military expansions to murder its enemies. i guess they just need some money from the people they want to murder, so they can go about their peaceful eradication of the jews.

                Some young people who do not have underlining conditions do die from this. You're also not considering the damage it does to some survivors (cardiac, lungs, liver, neurological, immune system, etc.)

                This is not a strong flu in that once its over if you survive everything goes back to normal, tiptop. There are no statistics on the damage it causes or long term deaths because we're in the early days of this thing. Downplaying the disease as something only old people need worry about is very dangerous in my opinion.

                  LOL, Iranian paddle boats are going to destroy navy warships.

                  Who is this guy in charge anyway? Didn't they have a super terrorist that Justin had an intimate and personal relationship with? I can't remember, I know he was personally upset when the last guy ran into a being blown up air hanger.

                      Macron thinks the EU could collapse, the third time in 100 years the great German Reich failed.

                      Good news here, britian out, Italy leaving soon, macron going to lose his job. All really really good stuff.

                      Started out as a free trade block, and turned into a giant communist run super state. Anyone know what side of the wall heir Merkel is from?

                          Go see all the nice things the not racists called him.

                          Did you know the not racists are allowed to call blacks coons, and uncle toms if they leave the Democrat plantation. It is considered the proper way to handle run away slaves.
