What is CD4 percentage normal range?
Sep 22, 2003

My doctor says that CD4 percentage is a more reliable figure than a CD4 count. Yet HIV decisions seem based on CD4 counts rather than percentage. For example, a person begins treatment below 350, Bactrim is given for OIs when below 200 etc. So what is normal CD4 percentages for healthy people--the percentage equivalent to,say, 500 to 1,500 CD4s? Thanks for your time.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

35-50%.
