Hello doctor. Permission to ask, can HIV sufferers be seen from the number of leukocytes? Thank you, doctor

1 Answer:

Good evening, thanks for the question


Examination of leukocyte levels is not a recommended examination because it cannot detect HIV infection in the body. To be able to detect the HIV virus, immunoserological examinations are generally carried out to detect antibodies and antigens of the HIV virus in the blood. HIV testing uses strategy III, which is using 3 types of tests with different capture points, generally with ELISA and confirmed by Western Blot. While the examination of white blood cell components, namely the examination of total lymphocytes and CD4, has a role in deciding when to start HIV treatment with anti-retroviral drugs (ARV) and monitoring the immune system after ARV is given. Other additional tests may be needed in addition to the above mentioned ones, including basic laboratory tests such as urinalysis, liver, kidney function tests, routine blood including leukocytes, erythrocytes, hemoglobin (Hb), count
types of leukocytes, platelets, and chest x-ray examination.


That's all, hope you can help.
Wassalam.
