CD4 count/CD4 ratio

May 7, 2005

If i have been told my cd4 % is 13 % and the absolute % is 80% what is the actual cd4 count am I at 200 yet? VL 400

My count was 0 and VL 300,000 before treatment 4 months ago.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

You should also have received an absolute CD4 count. I am not sure what you are referring to with the number 80%. Sounds like you have had a great initial treatment response.

VL and starting meds
