If someone has 800 CD4 count and is HIV positive, is that possible?

In brief: No surprise

Cd4 count drops off as untreated HIV infection progresses.
These are the lymphocytes that are infected and destroyed by the virus; ultimately their loss causes the immunodeficiency. I hope that if this person's account is accurate, that she is able to get treated for this serious infection.

In brief: Hiv

Very few people with HIV can get the virus and their immune system can keep it under check, or she may be under treatment.
