confused please help

Nov 19, 2005


I am very confused about my last CD4 numbers. Back in July 05 my numbers were CD4=1174, CD4%38, CD4:CD8 ratio 1.31

Now after only 4 months my CD4'S are down to 940, CD4%=40, CD4:CD8 ratio=1.5

How should I interpret the extreme loss of CD4 cells in such a short time?

Thanks Confused

Response from Dr. Holodniy

I would not be concerned about that change, given the stable CD4 percentage.
