Hello.Welcome to HCM forum.CD counts estimation doesn't check the presence of HIV.For the presence or diagnosis of HIV you have to get ELISA test,and if positive ,then to be confirmed by WESTERN BLOT test.Alternatively you can get PCR or RT-PCR TEST done which give quicker results.Thanks and good luck.
