Drop in Percentage

Dec 21, 2003

Please help! I am concerned and confused over my last three lab results.

May/2003- cd4 525..49..Undetectable

September/2003-cd4 946..46..Undetectable

December/2003- cd4 772..41..Undetectable

Why the drop in percentage? I have consistantly remained Undetectable and have never missed a dose of medication..Sustiva/Epivir/Abacavir. Thank You

Response from Dr. Holodniy

On the face of it, that drop looks real. However, I don't have a reason, nor would anyone do anything about it at this point, because your numbers are so good.
