HIV Treatment: Unfortunately there is not a good answer for you. Your friend is already at great risk. T cell counts under 200 put a person at risk of significant infections or cancers that can be life threatening. I am very happy he is in the hospital and i hope the treatment there will be life saving. It will take several weeks to begin building up his t cell count once treatment starts.
