Diagnosing AIDS involves some important tests. Physicians prefer to differentiate between people who have HIV infection and those who have AIDS. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), based in Atlanta, Georgia, recommends that physicians reserve the diagnosis of AIDS for HIV-infected people whose CD4 count falls below 200 cells per micro-liter of blood. A diagnosis of AIDS can also be made without confirmation of CD4 levels if someone who has no other reason for immune system damage develops an opportunistic disease. Diagnosing and treating AIDS is however a problem owing to the inability of scientist to give permanent remedy for the scourge.
