|CD drop, but % stable
Jun 10, 2006
Cd test performed last May was Tcell was 841, cd4% 51.2, two weeks ago Tcell test was 572, Cd4 % 52. I know that the CD4 % remained the same, but having the CD4 drop has me concerned. Is 52% actually out of range, high? My over all Lymphocytes droped to 1100. Awaiting CD4/CD8 ratio test.I was on Valtrex for Herpes, could that effect the Cd count? VL unknown.

Herpes could possibly affect the count.
