Ask health dept: First, i'm sorry about your co-worker. If he or she had Meningococcal meningitis, it would have been reported to the health department in your state. They contact everyone who had close contact with the person, and treat them with antibiotics. If that hasn't happened, it's more likely it was viral meningitis, which you don't need to worry about. ...Read more

My fecal lactoferrin level was high at 22, negative for infections, other than norovirus. I thought only bacteria increased FL. Could it be start IBD?

Possibly: I have no experience with the use of Lactoferrin and I do not know what kind of symptoms you are experiencing. There is a post infectious irritable bowel described over the last few years. In my opinion best will be for you to initiate a log with food and drinks that you have and the type of symptoms- say bloating, diarrhea, etc. Once you have couple of weeks see your gastroenterologist. ...Read more

A high count of CD4 (whitebloodcell) is a sign of HIV ?  I have a count of 14, 000 cause a staphy bacteria, but , a high count is a sign of hiv?

Misinformed: Cd4 cells are the mangers of the immune system's functions. A high cd4 count represents excellent health and excellent immune function. In no way does any cd4 cell count represent an HIV infection in and of itself. And a high count is even more emphatically not an indication that someone has hiv. ...Read more
